This is a very exciting day for me and for many Americans. For the first time in my life I have voted for a candidate for President who I am excited about, who I think represents my world view, and who inspires us to be our better selves. The fact that he is mixed race, has roots in Africa and has lived in Indonesia, hopefully means he will be a better world citizen and help mend the fences that the Bush Administration has so carelessly destroyed.

What do you all think of the American election?

It is amazing to me, who grew up during the violent riots of the sixties civil rights movement, and who watched in horror as my city, Boston, bitterly fought integration of the Boston Schools, to now see a Black man elected to the highest office in the land. So much change in such a relatively short amount of time. Just imagine what could happen in China if enough good people worked for change.

What do you think?
