Obama and Change

November 3, 2010,
Claire Montanaro

The mid-term election results in the US have provided an opportunity for voters to express anger, resentment, disillusionment, and blame, but while the balance of power in Congress has shifted, what otherwise has really changed?

It seems likely that the present situation of unwieldy political power and vested interest, economic chaos and social inequity will continue as before until at least the presidential election in 2012, and meanwhile the fears, anxieties and feelings of negativity within a large part of the population will continue to simmer and grow. Change is demanded, and change will come.

Blame and judgment are unattractive bedfellows, and when combined with expectation can create an impossible situation. Barack Obama became president at a time when his country was facing an unimaginably difficult financial and social crisis against a backdrop of global instability and political impotence. Despite this, he was expected to create a miracle of transformation within months. It was impossible, and it seems likely now that he will limp on, wounded and limited, for as long as he is allowed, his good intentions and efforts largely unrecognised in the clamour of criticism  and political expediency all around him.

This scenario could change, however, if there is an event of great magnitude occurring, and this is possible. If the President displays inspirational and effective leadership to unite the American people, his reputation and fortune will be transformed at home and globally, and he will be able to achieve everything he wanted in office.  If he fails to rise to the challenge, the damage will be irreparable.

All western national leaders are being judged and questioned by their citizens, not just Obama, all are walking a tightrope, all are being forced to do what is unpopular.  It is a lonely role they have chosen, but only Obama is a world leader. What he does, what America does, eventually affects all of us. This is why we need to pay attention, to watch and learn. Change there changes everything - and there will be change, sooner or later, and on a massive scale.
