It was like a foregone conclusion that this Barack Obama was going to be the next President of the US of A. Many thought that a “black President” would not happen in our generation’s life time …….. just as we thought that real political cooperation between Malays, Chinese and Indians in Malaysia would not happen in our life time!

Some even thought that the closest an African American could make it to the Presidential elections was to be the “third” candidate after the Democratic and Republican nominees …. like Jesse Jackson. They also thought Colin Powell would have an outside chance to make it in the foreseeable future.

But then came this Obama chap who turned the form books upside down by upstaging Hillary Rodham Clinton first before defeating McCain.

Btw, Rocky reminds us that Obama is mixed and Rocky does not understand why people refer to Obama as “the first BLACK president of the USA”.

Does it matter? The fact of the matter is that Americans, for all their rhetoric, can see beyond the race factor in choosing their own President. That principle is coming true in Malaysia too and has become a great a concern to the politicians who thrive on racial polarisation.

Btw, Obama’s half sister is married to a Malaysian Chinese ….. so there’s further inspiration for us Malaysians to pursue the Ketuanan Rakyat, Bangsa Malaysia and the likes. Obama’s half brother in law might even get the President’s help to remove the racial inspired barriers that caused him, like many other Malaysians, to look outside Malaysia to earn a decent living!

Obama appears to be a Stoic Chap! But he also seems to be immensely smart, a great orator and great leader. Let’s hope he walks the talk and proves to the likes of our politicians that they cannot continue to act like “BOSSES” ….. they must become “LEADERS”, the real kind!
