As the immensely encapsulating Beijing Olympics draw to a close there is a real sense of anticipation and feelgood factor presently sweeping Great Britain as the 2012 London Games become a step nearer.

Hillary Clinton is to join Barack Obama at a rally – their first public event since she pulled out of the race to be the Democratic presidential candidate.
The rally in Unity, New Hampshire, is seen as an opportunity for party supporters to come together after the divisive primary battle. The event follows a joint dinner in Washington where Mr. Obama offered help to clear Mrs. Clinton’s campaign debts. Mrs. Clinton is expected to back Mr. Obama’s White House bid at the rally.
Sen. Barack Obama has asked top contributors to help his former rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Hillary Clinton, retire her debt, an Obama campaign source said Tuesday.
Obama did not direct members of his National Finance Committee to contribute to Clinton’s campaign, the source said, but asked them to do so if they were so inclined. Clinton suspended her campaign and endorsed Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination this month.
She has amassed a campaign debt of about $22 million, but about $12 million of that is money the New York senator loaned to the campaign herself. Individual donors can contribute $2,300 to individual candidates. Clinton and Obama have scheduled a joint campaign appearance Friday in Unity, New Hampshire.
Obama said Tuesday that he had spoken with Clinton by phone earlier in the day as well as on Sunday. “We had a good conversation,” he said. “We’re looking forward to seeing each other tomorrow and campaigning on Friday.”
Nothing worse than an opponent who feels sorry for you!!!
Dead Parrot? The Irish nation has spoken with a resounding NO. Will the masters of the European Union listen? Don’t be so naive.
Barack Obama’s Audacity of Hope
There’s not a liberal America and a conservative America; there’s the United States of America. There’s not a black America and a white America and a Latino America and an Asian America; there’s the United States of America.
Ireland Says “No” To Plan B, But Don’t Worry, We Still Have Plan C, Plan D And Plan E
Since the days of Shakespeare, drama is at home in English-speaking countries. So it was almost pathetic that the results of the Irish referendum about the Lisbon Treaty were announced on Friday 13th.

Libya‘s leader has strongly criticized US presidential candidate Barack Obama for saying Jerusalem should remain the undivided capital of Israel.
Col Muammar Gaddafi said he was either ignorant of the Middle East conflict or lying to boost his campaign. Mr. Obama was speaking to pro-Israel lobbyists in the US last week. Referring to him as “our Kenyan brother”, Col Gaddafi also said Mr. Obama might suffer from an inferiority complex because of his African origins.
The issue of race could make Mr. Obama’s behavior “more white than white people”, Col Gaddafi suggested, rather than acting in solidarity with African and Arab nations. The comments came during a speech to mark the 38th anniversary since the US evacuated Wheelus Air Force base in Tripoli.
Times are definitely changing!!!
Hillary Clinton will withdraw from the race to become the Democratic candidate for the US presidency, and back her rival Barack Obama, her campaign says.
On Tuesday, Mr. Obama gained enough delegates to win the nomination, after the final votes of the primary season. Mrs. Clinton has still not admitted in public that she lost the contest, but on Saturday she will do so “and express her support for Senator Obama”.
Mr. Obama has already announced a team to help select his running mate. Reports that Mrs. Clinton was ready to concede came after she made a conference call to senior Democrats in Congress.
At a Democratic Party event in Washington, Mrs. Clinton will also “express her support… for party unity”, her communications director Howard Wolfson said. Earlier, it had been announced that the event would be held on Friday, but Mr. Wolfson said it had been delayed a day “to accommodate more of Senator Clinton’s supporters who want to attend”.
Hillary had the ability to have a multi-collective voters and supporters often from all sides of the American political life; the big question now is if these people are going to support Obama.
