Obama in Editorial News Around the World


The U.S. Presidential Election is over ... he did it ... Barack Obama won! What did editorials across the world say, imply, question, disparage, hope, ...?

The Times of London
"... the poor blacks among whom Mr. Obama launched his political career. He is not the last role model they will ever need, but he is the most powerful proof his country has produced that it is ready to judge them by the content of their character, not the color of their skin."

La Stampa, Italy:
"The new president knows better than anyone else -- he said it in his first speech -- of having enormous problems to resolve. We will see of what stuff he is made of, his capacity to support a government, outside of his unquestioned media talents ..."

Berliner Morgenpost, Germany:
"In the midst of an international crisis, Obama's victory gives rise to a moment of global confidence. The globe is caught up in a feeling of 'Yes, we can.'"

O Estado de S. Paulo, Brazil:
"We were rooting for Obama because we were rooting for the resurgence of the American dream." Do you agree that there will be a resurgence of the American dream under Barack Obama?

Jomhuri Eslami, Iran:
"While arrogance and support to Israel are major parts of the U.S. imperialism, expecting change in the US policy under Obama, is a naive expectation."

Al-Riyadh, Saudi Arabia:
"We in the Arab and Islamic world should not be tempted to believe that Obama will lay his prayer rug in a mosque, declare himself to be of Islamic faith, become hostile to Israel and pull his troops from Iraq or Afghanistan."

Americas & Caribbean news says:
"Venezuela's Hugo Chávez is open to new relations with the U.S. aimed at launching a constructive bilateral agenda."

Philippine Daily Inquirer:
"The prospect of the first African-American sitting in the Oval Office (and a young African-American family living in the White House) has not only renewed Americans' faith in their system (in which, it is said, anyone can grow up to be president) but earned global good will for the United States."

National Post, Canada:
"Writing as Canadian journalists, we must confess to feeling a certain surreal sense as we witness history in the making in the United States. The election is not ours, yet it is impossible not to feel a certain vicarious thrill as we watch our American friends experience this historic event. As political figures go, Mr. Obama arouses an unusual amount of admiration on this side of the border. Indeed, we've never seen anything like it." Does Barack Obama arouse admiration in you?
