The World Celebrates.

His grandmother celebrates in Kenya, where a national holiday has been declared.

At Obama's former school in Indonesia.

Reaction from Manila, Philippines.



I hope American readers have some appreciation of just how much this victory means to millions of people who live thousands of miles from your shores.

The world feels like a different place today, a better place, a more compassionate place. And you did that. Thank you. From the bottom of all of our hearts. Thank you.

It's like an anti-9/11. There's so much good feeling in the world towards America. Again. Somehow, I dont think Obama's gonna piss away the way Dubya did.

I'm with you Dave. It's like America is back again and the world is simply thrilled.

And Obama, like Clinton before him, will delight us with the way he governs. Bush, of course, tried to rule which is why we all despised him.
