Wow, America actually did it. I seriously thought the US was still at least a century away from electing a black president. Well, I'm glad it's Obama and not McCain because if it were the latter then Canadian hostility towards Americans would just reach an unbearable level. The last time I moved to Vancouver it was right after W was re-elected, and I got pretty tired of all the shit Canadians were saying about how stupid Americans were. Although most of their remarks were true, it was still my country they were ridiculing, and I just didn't want to hear it. My response was, "Well, at least you don't have to live in the U.S and have Bush as your leader."

Now that I think about it, each of the three times I've moved to Vancouver happened during a presidential election year.
