Hopeful for U.S. President-Elect Obama

All eyes are on the incoming U.S. new President, Barack Obama. Much is expected of him from not only the United States, but also from the rest of the world, for him to deliver the necessary changes to address on two fronts - the battered economy and the Middle East situation.

Mr Obama has many times emphasized that change is coming, however, he also stressed the effects will not be quick and the road to recovery will take years. The road ahead is bright but definitely is not going to be short.

Being over hopeful and anxious for results to happen overnight can be disappointing. We need to be patient too see fruits.

    I am afraid that not as many people will be patient like this. It's hard to be when everyone has been given the sense of urgency from his campaign.

    All that aside, I think tomorrow will be a big day no matter what. Whether people are watching at home or sitting in the mix taking pictures, it will be a day to remember.

  2. Many across the world will be watching the inauguration ceremony. CNN has it live on Facebook.

    My country, Singapore, will be showing it live on TV.
