President- Elect number 44

And so, we have the 44th president of the United States of America- President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama. I wish him much luck in dealing with the myriad problems in today's global world.

To name a few:

The economy- in most countries- is in a recession, if not a depression by now.

The political situation in the Middle East- Abbas wants him to get the new PM of Israel (whoever that will be) to agree to divy up Jerusalem- hand over East Jerusalem to the jurisdiction of the PA, and possibly Gaza as well. Not only that, but Ahmadinejad has threatened to wipe Israel off the map- so we might be seeing a war with Iran soon, if they continue to produce a nuclear bomb.

The political situation globally- he'll now have to deal with the UN and all that it stands for. Enough said.

The war in Iraq- we'll see if he withdraws, and how that actually plays out.

The state of healthcare in the US- he wants to socialize (sort of) the health system- I hope that it works, as insurance in the US costs a fortune, as compared to here.

That's enough for any president to handle, even with a trillion dollar debt hanging over them.

So- good luck to you, President-Elect Obama! You might need it.
