OBAMANIA - Please deliver Your Promises Mr. President

As long as I remember, it was my first time watching the US presidential inauguration ever. Never bothered or interested before. Together with my family (minus Saifullah), we were watching with billion others for a historical moment in our lifetime.
Faidhi was really impressed with Obama's oratory skill and selection of words, "Is he memorising the whole dictionary?"
While Muhaimin asked a lot of questions as well as commented about anything on Obama and past US presidents, like, "Why Bush did not contest again?"
As I told my kids, we will remember this event for a long time to come, and perhaps one day, we may drop by in Washington to visit Obama....with the impending visit of Pak Lah to Dubai tomorrow, if we ever get invited to meet the outgoing PM of Malaysia these kids may have different views....such as, "Is this our leader?"

‘To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward’
Barack Obama steps into history as he takes the oath of office to become President Obama, the first black leader of the United States.
Millions around the world and record crowds in Washington witness the swearing in and inaugural address.
The newly-sworn president lays out the many problems facing the country in a hopeful but sober speech.

"To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect." President Barack Obama.
