After all the Bally hoo – and the money spent, America did finally wake up and smell the coffee and re- elect Barack Obama for a second term. There’s no doubt that the first term was not without issues and maybe not as successful as his supporters might have hoped.
The world was surely though not ready for another “Bush clone” with policies of tax cutting and sabre rattling.
Whilst the US is a long way from the UK and not all of us savour the so called special relationship, there’s no doubt Obama had earned a second term and the added momentum of a successful second term will lend weight to any possibility of a Hilary Clinton bid next time.
For now though we can all sleep in our beds and Romney can go back to making money.
