The world was tired Bush-era, but especially of some of its most unfortunate decisions as supported Iraq invasion in testing and false arguments, the ignominious treatment to prisoners of war (who don’t even have been granted such status), the legalization of torture and the creation of secret prisons in European countries as well as his indifference to environmental issues. 4. The new President of the United States represents a refreshing air in domestic politics and foreign relations of the United States and hopes for a position closer to the global interests in matters as sensitive as the compromise is reopen to curb global warming; the achievement of peace in the Middle East and put into agenda of social issues in countries that have usually been their allies. 5.

The new President comes from a minority that has suffered the greatest humiliations and subject to all imaginable forms of discrimination. It is consistent to think then that minority groups have special consideration and open the way towards a fair deal for them (e) equal. The new President is already sending and not has been slow to start starting measures related to some of his campaign promises as, for example, the fixing of a deadline to end the shame of Guantanamo prison. But even more is expected. I hope the world does not lose sight of something elementary: President Obama is not God. He is a man, and as such, there will be errors, heartaches and unfinished business. So it would be suitable to make reasonable expectations and do not expect miracles that can take to occur or not occur ever.
