Thoughts from Around the World on the Barack Obama Election

I thought it would be interesting to grab some quotes and headlines from around the world on the election of Barack Obama.

Nelson Mandela of South Africa:
"Your victory has demonstrated that no person anywhere in the world should not dare to dream of wanting to change the world for a better place.

Nicolas Sarkozy of France:
"At a time when we have to confront immense challenges together, your election raises great hopes in France, Europe and in the rest of the world.

The Times of London - The New World
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany) - Barack Obama: In America Everything is Possible
The Sun (Britain) - One Giant Leap for Mankind
O Globo (Brazil) - Change Has Come
II Giornale (Italy) - The World has a new Emperor
Pravda (Russia) - A Change for the Better
