As someone born in NY, I was raised on hope and dreams – that people can make a difference, that one can succeed in life on merit, that the U.S. is fundamentally good. There have been serious questions raised about all of those under the out-going administration.
I don’t believe by any stretch that all problems will be solved with Obama as President, but I do feel this election will bring about real change in terms of what people (both in- and outside the US) believe is achievable, and that is a very, very good start.
