/uploadedImages/utne/home_page/BarackObama-Pointing.jpgLast night, Barack Obama announced that “a new dawn of American leadership is at hand.” What will that mean for everyone else? According to Jason Kottke’s webpage, when Obama wins, “everyone will be 20 years younger and 20 pounds thinner.” Also, “all gov't buildings will be made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper... and Hope.” 

Inspired in part by Barack Obama Is Your New Bicycle, the site reposts Twitter messages with the words, “When Obama wins.” And, like the video below, it’s a reminder of what the expectations of a Obama presidency might be.
