Mr Obama
It's Time!
Have I mentioned in the last twenty minutes how much I like Barack Obama? (And yes tortoises this is another post about Politics :-P )

I'm just reading about Hillary Clinton visiting Indonesia, the first place she's been outside the US since becoming secretary of state. All part of a plan to reach out to south east asia and especially the large Muslim nations there. Which is a bloody brilliant strategy - to be visiting a country like Indonesia which is a traditionally a friend of the US, but which also, conveniently, a democratic Islamic nation. And is where Obama lived for a few years as a kid... What a great way to send a message to the moderate Muslims in the world. If they get countries like Indonesia and Malaysia on side, that'll really dent the image of the US as the bad guys...
