Barack Obama's Impact on Canada

At the moment I am in class with around 100 other Canadians watching the Inaugural Address of President Barack Obama. It is an amazing feeling to be watching this historic event, and slightly odd being the only American in the room. Barack Obama's Presidency will undoubtedly have an positive impact on the United States and the world, especially in light of the past eight years. As seen with the tremendous enthusiasm about Obama in Canada and the headline news that he will visit Canada on his first overseas trip, Canadians are no less excited for Obama's presidency. In fact, Canadians prefer Obama over their own leaders. I know I for one am very excited for the next four years.
