Obama has completed his first 100 days…

3484856538_dd9a1d14bd…and here in Canada, the derision that had been directed towards the US over the last eight years is slowly giving way to a reluctant admiration, even… envy.  I mean seriously, don’t we all wish we had a leader and an administration that was this open, connected, charismatic and (dare i say it) …COOL?

I’m not American… but what the heck!

I (along with most of the free world) am currently watching to see who the US chooses for their new president tonight.   Even the Teenager occasionally peels himself away from his computer to check the stats. 

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CITIZENS OF THE USA: YES YOU CAN!!!

That was a great acceptance speech – gave me goosebumps.  And, i really, really love these pictures…
