Throughout his 2008 campaign, Barack  Obama declared that he would "chart a new course for America", and in his victory speech he said: “This victory alone is not the change we seek. It is only the chance for us to make this change. And this cannot happen if we go back to the way things were." And to all those watching tonight from beyond our shores, our destiny is shared.
