The Press Watching Obama

The world watching Obama ~ a selection of newspaper & magazine covers from 'Le Monde' in France.

 

Tuesday the 20th of January 2009, Barak Obama was sworn-in as the 44th President of the United States of America.

 

The world is watching and hoping for a better future....

 

"...that out of many, we are one;

that while we breathe, we hope;

and where we are met with cynicism, and doubt, and those who tell us that we can't, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people in three simple words:

 

Yes...We...Can...."

 

Extract from the victory speech made in South Carolina on the 5th of February 2008.
