A Happy World?

A strident supporter of President-elect Obama said to me that “the world” seems happy with our new choice.  This, I do not wish to contest.

What I will confess to is a singular lack of interest regarding what “the world” thinks of our President-to-be.

I am, however, interested in the immediate joy expressed by the likes of Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.  In addition, it is also hard to ignore the recent Russian confidence to attempt the placement of missiles on the border of Poland…

What the residents or parlamentarians of France or Germany or Brussels think of these developments matters, to me, not one iota.

How Mr. Obama thinks and acts will matter a great deal.
