I saw a number of internet memes around the recent US election. Most were average, a fair few scatological, and a handful were really funny (viz for example Tony Abbott, and Big Bird).
Having seen the number of Americans who swore they would move to Australia if Obama won, it was gratifying to see such a succinct response:
Further, a clear and consistent majority of Australians preferred Obama to win - as did most of the rest of the world (bar Pakistan). Doesn't leave much of an option for those wanting to move.
It's important to have heroes - and vision. And the world is a slightly better place.
