Italians Are Excited For the Obama Inauguration This Week.

The week has finally arrived where President elect Obama will be sworn into office as the President of the United States. These are historical times with much at stake and the whole world watching. The world, including our very own Italy. Many Italians were supportive of the Obama campaign and ultimately wanted him to win this years election, lucky us that happened.
The Italians view Obama as a symbol of positive change, as do I. I can tell you from a daughter of an immigrant perspective, my parents are also hopeful of the positive change. America and positive change go hand in hand, so when we've endured 8 years of hell, we can only hope that that was the worst of it and we are coming out of the tail end of the horror. Bush did what he had to, protected the USA at a time of attack, but the Republican party ways sealed his fate as the worst President in history. He can thank them in private, he'll have plenty of time on his hands. America is the dream and the Italians realize that America resurrected and liberated their country after World War II. The relationship between our two countries is solid. I think I can say for many immigrant children that we are all excited to see a great President sworn into office who understands what the people need. Way to go Obama!
