First Iowa now...? Hope has returned to politics

As a first time voter (I got my USA citizenship August 22nd) I am watching the process by which Americans select their our nominees with absolute fascination. I would love to attend a caucus. Amazing to see democracy at work.

We held our breath for the Iowa caucus results and yippee - Obama beat out both Edwards and She Who Seemed Inevitable... First Iowa next New Hampshire.

I've been doing my usual blog surfing to see what the blogosphere is saying about the presidential hopefuls and came across this interesting post from South Africa (linked by Andrew Sullivan.)

Oh, say! Can you see by the dawn’s early light … o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave: hope has returned to politics.

(*What joy it would be to reverse my New Year’s prediction that Hillary Clinton wins the US presidential elections and to see Obama win)
