Obama is president for another four years. His right honorable excellency professor doctor general Jammeh, The Gambia’s president, was so impressed by the elections demonstration of democracy that he declared a public holiday. The irony. I can’t talk about this sadly.
It’s strange to think I will not be able to make a judgement on Obamas second term for another two years. I still find it difficult to comprehend that the US president affects me. It doesn’t here, although I hope his election means another influx of Obama merchandise – weird t shirts, strange bags bearing his likeness, political stationery. The celebrated president, the presidential celebrity.
As a side note I got wished an impersonal happy holidays from the President which made me actually very happy.
