At 4am this evening Barack Obama was announced the incumbent president of the USA. History has been made and will be discussed with greater fluency elsewhere. John McCain has now graciously stepped down from the race. I cannot express how much I hope I have for this to positively effect not just America but the world.
For the last 8 years America has neglected its role as a beacon of goodness in the world. Similarly, I have neglected television for the art of cinema. As a result, inspired by the victory of Obama, I hereby announce my candidacy for watching the entirety of The West Wing before the end of the year.
These are special times.
In the meantime, this link will no doubt be of some interest.
