    LOL. Another Canukian weighing in to say I totally agree. (I sure wish I could vote but I left the US when I was 10 so have no former voting address).

    The ad touched every base that it had to and was a beautful balance of Barack's story and political policies and the lives of ordinary Americans. Not one negative line in it.

    Kudos to whoever put it together.

    I loved it and plan to watch it again at 8pm PST.



    I don't know if Americans know or care how much the rest of the world is rooting for him. 8-)

      With almost certainly an even larger Democratic congress behind him, he will have zero excuses for not delivering on every one of those promises.
      There are no strings on me

        That's if the Democrats get to magical number of "60" in the Senate.

          I am no expert but surely unknown economic and world events could factor into some things not being implementing exactly as he has promised.

          Certianly a large Democratic congress would help though.

            a few weeks ago they polled cross-section of euros & it was somewhere like 65 - 70 to 30 - 35 in favor of obama

            it may be even more by now

            you americans are not just voting for your country, but for the future goodwill with europe for next few years - if obama lives upto his promises, we can see rapprochment with france ( which has been politically hostile to america for past 8y ), an improved relationship with germany ( has been a cool relationship since merkel came to power ), likely much better relations with britain ( we have cameron, a young, charasmatic obama-like opposing leader, who is likely to become prime minister - he is currently leader of the "republican" party in britain, but he has "connected" with obama - both young men with a similar vision of the world )

            a strong american-euro relationship is probably most important international relationship in the world

              Tube Time

              A very well-conceived message to unsure white voters (Blacks have voted 89-95% Dem in the last three presidential elections- and similar #'s since Humphrey vs. Nixon). McCaskill, Sibelius, a Lugar mention, Gen. Patton reference, a speech where Obama cited small biz.

              The question is, how did it play to those at which it was aimed? Some smart t.v. producer should have asked a small live audience of undecideds afterwards.

                I think it is clear to everyone with half a brain that economy is going to stifle the implementation of 100% of either candidate's campaign promises. But with Obama and a Dem congress there will be many improvements in the direction things have been going, and it will be hard to blame the soon-to-be-current Reps for any failures to deliver.
