To make mention of Barack Obama’s name in this small country is to turn on a lightbulb in people’s eyes.
Person after person simply says, “O-bam-a…” and there is a sigh and a slight smile… there is a bit of hope.
How has this man managed to inspire hope here? It is something thoroughly remarkable and almost scary – how can anyone live up to it? What can he do to live up to it?
Perhaps, after last night’s wins, we will find out.
