The Obama-mania in Europe, specially the scenes of his Berlin speech with 200,000 participants were truly amazing. It's quite naive to think that the American century is over. Still, an semi-progressive US presidential candidate can grab the hearts and minds of millions of people. In a world that heroism and idealism has died, only an American political genuis like Barack Obama is able to steal people's heart like that.

Yet, Obama has to win the hearts and minds of the average American and then has to work around the most powerful corporate system in the world to get any small bits done. How much can really get done, stays quite a mystery. Specially with the huge and unreserved service that Bush administration has awarded to those corporate powers in the past 7 years!!
