The international community watched the American 2008 presidential campaign with a keen interest in the candidates and the outcome. When election day came, the world again watched -- and cheered -- as Barack Obama won by a landslide. Now, as Obama makes history by becoming the first African American president of the United States, the world will again be watching, cheering, laughing and perhaps even crying.
