Our new President has a daunting list of tough tasks ahead of him. One of the most important is repairing the view of the United States in the eyes of the rest of the world. Posts like this tell us that that work has already begun.

Outside the USA, Obama seems to be regarded much more positively than Bush. In his speech he said that the USA wants to be friends with all people who want a peaceful future, no matter where they come from or what their race or religion is, and he has promised to close Guantanamo Bay and retreat troops from Iraq. So, he's definitely on the way to repair the image of the USA in the eyes of the rest of the world.

Yep, I agree, from what I can see around me, general attitude towards America has improved dramatically. If you go to the pubs around here and speak loudly in American accent, you will get slagged off for being loud and American, but this time they probably would also love you for selecting Obama.
For me personally, he seems to speaking sense, picking the right people for his team, and making the right moves so far - science and peace first in his list, and he even acknowledged non-believers in his inaugural speech! That man is educated, rational, capable and will be a good President!

Please be careful what you post in this thread. We generally delete all political threads as soon as we see them, since they always cause us headaches. I've been debating deleting this one as well, but since it has mostly been "contrats to Barrack/U.S.A.", I let it stay.
These last few posts are rapidly pointing it in the wrong direction. Please stay away from politics here, or the thread WILL vanish.
