It's November 5 here and November 4 in America and I'm glad to know it's not just me who is totally riveted to this historic milestone but the entire world as well. It was a transcendent moment when Barack Obama cast his ballot with his name on the ticket as the possible next president of the United States because not too many years ago being black meant being a slave who was not allowed to vote much less have his name on the ballot as a candidate even for any position at all. Things do change. Hopefully, for the better this time.
I am thinking of our own politicians in the Philippines. For sure they are following this election with eagle eyes and taking copious notes. Wonder how it will be for us in 2010.
Meanwhile, the battle continues.
