I got all choked up and teary-eyed when the election results came in today and Barack Obama had won. I really wish him all the best, especially as he takes over the reins at a particularly difficult time in US history with uncertainty if not meltdown in the financial markets and environmental catastrophe imminent.
I'm sure we all have our own particular prayers for the new president. Novelist Alice Walker writes him an open letter in The Root, full of good advice.
Hmm what else should we tell him?
