I am not alone. Almost everyone is amused if not shocked.
Sanity prevails in the end. After 8 years of madness, USA finally has a logical man at the top. Dad said that Obama speaks like a movie star. I had say, after Bush anyone sounds better!
So, the banks and financial institutions in the USA are collapsing. The US government announces a bailout package for most of them. Some would go down, others will survive. No one dies.
All this happened pretty suddenly. Of course, some people knew it was going to come. Others had speculated that it could come.
I have little knowledge about the American political system. I do not understand how they start working for the Presidential elections around 2 years before they are scheduled to take place.
