I'm afraid I cannot be the one to prove you wrong, especially since it's his first day and since I am not an American, but a European.
I didn't want Obama or McCain in particular to win, but I was afraid of Palin - knowing what she had already done and the fact that she's a hunter in Alaska (yes, I am an animal lover). I am also afraid of the fact that Obama is the first african-american President, and you will never know what changes he may bring to accomodate his race.
I believe that he is professional and serious enough to not be into racism, and will treat everyone equally. I am hoping that he would put what he proposed into facts and give an example to the world by stopping the war in Iraq. (I read that it would take him around a year and a half to make this possible). I saw a bit of his speeches from last night and I am amazed.
I think that America has made the right choice, and I too think that he's bringing a new age for the US.
