So Glad We All Voted!

Not that big of an announcement about Obama. But, article details his trip to Asia and meetings with the new, Premier Wen Jiabao, at the East Asia Summit in Cambodia and a visit to Myanmar taking place in just 10 days..

Text after text was coming in to my phone while I sat in a room with nine other newcomers to Hong Kong. I was the only American, and I was on the edge of my seat thinking and worrying about the election outcome. Finally, I had to apologize to the group for not being polite and monitoring texts, and that I was getting news of the election from the states. Everyone immediately wanted to know what was happening. The group was made up of German, Colombian, Australian, Trinidad and Canadian . Most have lived in several other places in the world before Hong Kong. The main question they had was; “how could anyone vote for Romney in American?” From their perspective, the choice was very clear and a Romney presidency would be very bad, not only for the US, but for the world. When I received the test from my sister “OMG..WE WON!!!!!” I happily relayed the message to an approving group.
