He stumbled a little bit...
When I was watching it yesterday, the video stopped just before the oath of office... and resumed just after. Gutted!
Barack Obama gave his victory speech yesterday in Chicago, and I saw it live on my TV. I feel proud I could attend this historic moment.
However, I didn't find his speech very original, he repeated a lot his campaign punchlines, he hasn't been very concrete when you compare with Nicolas Sarkozy's triumphant speech last year. Besides, I really liked McCain's speech, who has been very humble and tried to heal the wounds.
Here, at work, at home, everyone's happy.
Incredible. I'm speechless.
Although everyone forgot her, buried her, even I didn't believe in anymore, Hillary Clinton wins, with a short hand, the primary in New Hampshire. If her victory, although polls predicted up to a 13 points loss to her rival, is stunning in itself and reminds of her husband's campaign in 1992 during which he managed to come back thanks to New Hampshire as well, another surprising element is her speech, which changed from the negative tone of the past few days.
There is, though, still a very long way to go. Obama is not going to give up that easily, the other Democratic candidates' behaviour is still unpredictable and most of all, we don't know who the Republicans will choose.
The suspense will last until November the 4th. You'd better tighten your seatbelts because I feel there will again be many other surprises.
Hillary Clinton revealed this week that she managed to gather more money than principal rival Barack Obama during the last trimester, and a Washington Post/ABC News surbey gave her a 33 points lead over Obama, which gives her 53% favourable opinion for the democratic nomination. This is the first time a survey places her above the symbolic 50%. But of course, the primary elections are far from over since the first votes occur only in January.
One of them will (maybe) be the United States' next president. Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
Now that French polls are over, let's cover the American elections! So, what candidate do you prefer? Hillary, former president Bill Clinton's wife or Barack, one of the few senators to object to war on Irak? When you consult the websites of Clinton and Obama, you hesitate. The ex-first lady's website is better-looking but subjects are very "teletubbies-like". But about one of the few black american senators, design is poorer but subjects are more serious. And, big news, he's supported by Oprah Winfrey!
