NOW Obama is our president elect, the rosy-fingered dawn of a new era in world affairs is upon us.

The world is changed forever. Now a goat farmer in Kenya can say that he can be whatever he wants. An Hawaiian can be King. A small child whose name ends in vowel can have hope. A half-white man can be cheered by Black Panthers.

And now it comes to pass that Obama can be at all places at all times. Thanks to the internets, Obama can truly be the world president.

As the Huffington Post reports:

President-elect Obama’s office gave the media a new way to present him as Franklin Roosevelt 2.0 by announcing Friday that it will be posting weekly addresses – fireside chats for the web generation – on YouTube.

A weekly address for the world as part of the “digital, transparent presidency”. How we will sit glued to the screen as Obama speak unto us.

Only one other leader has harnessed the power of the web in such a fashion, and he lives in a cave in Afghanistan.
