Living another man's dream

I'm in Hong Kong this week with work, the first time I've been here in over 20 years, and all eyes are on the US.

On Nathan Road and in Central they're selling Obama t-shirts, and the local papers are filled with the rich prospect of not if he'll become president, but what he'll do when he gets the office. No more White House is a joke I heard on the Star Ferry.

He's living another man's dream, voiced over 45 years ago. Just when you completely loose faith in American politics and values, this happens. If it wasn't for an exquisite confluence of events it would never have happened at all, but it is happening and I never thought it would. Amazing.
