Disclaimer: If I was a citizen of the U.S. I would have voted for Obama, and I was as happy as most of the world to see him elected.
Now, having said that, I am getting fed up with Obama worship by the media. I do not watch TV, and I only subscribe to one print magazine, and yet, even I have got more than my fill of glamorous presidential-looking shots of Mr Obama.
So with the inauguration coming up tomorrow, my hope is that the hype will give way to actual working mood. There's a lot to be done.
On a side note, if you care to read in just how many ways Mr Bush has failed, the Economist has a good writeup.
