News of Barack Obama's victory brings 'relief and joy' around the world
So we weren't entirely surprised to learn today that American Democrats aren't the only people celebrating Obama's historic victory. According to Henry Chu, the Times' London bureau chief, the rest of the world is downright ecstatic about Obama's win, too.
"If history records a sudden surge in carbon emissions on Wednesday, it may be due to the collective exhalation of relief and joy by the hundreds of millions -- perhaps billions -- of people around the globe who watched, waited and prayed for Barack Obama to be elected president of the United States."
