The Evening Standard
The world was glued to the TV watching the euphoria which greeted President Obama on Inagruration Day. I thought his speech was "brilliant" and I was so proud to be an American (wouldn't that make a great title for a song?) I could not wait to read what the British papers had to say about our new President and the change he promises.
"It reminds us that America's best asset is now, as it always has been, a belief in itself and capacity for renewal. The pictures from Washington did not lie yesterday. Obama inspires faith, belief and the stubborn, sustaining attributes of "virtue and hope" against all odds. There's a lesson there - and not just for America." The Evening Standard
Now, if they would just quit calling him BEARack Obama!
