There's an elementary school in Indonesia that's celebrating Barack
Obama's victory in the Presidential election.

It is the elementary school that Obama attended as a youngster in the
country's capital city of Jakarta. Hundreds of students cheered and danced through raindrops when they learned who would become the next U-S President.

Obama lived in the world's most popular Muslim nation with his American mother and Indonesian stepfather from 1967 until 1971.
He studied at the Menteng One Elementary School for two years.

    I'm going to start saving all of my posts and resending them until I see them up here. I can't believe that so many just get lost in the ether. Anywho, as I posted, there was never any question Washington county would go for Obama as we have a near 80% minority population. And you know, I don't mind that many people voted for him based on race, as long as they admit that as the reason they're voting for him. I think it's sad that they don't know or care about what he stands for but I understand what it means for black people to see a black man in that office. That being said, they're all going to be very disappointed when he can't deliver on his promises to take care of them.

    Why shouldn't they be happy. One of their very own citizens just became President of the United States. God bless America.
