How that Barack Obama is officially the new president, I wonder if it's going to change the attitude many people have toward the United States. I have talked with some of my friends in other countries and they all say they are hopeful that Obama will change the direction of our country and the world.
For a long time opinions of the United States have been very bad around the world. We have broken a lot of treaties with other countries, started a war based on a lie and have not maintained a friendly dialogue.
I know it's probably unrealistic to expect that all our problems will be solved with a new president. But, I wonder if people in other countries will change their outlook on the U.S. simply because we have a leader who wants to engage with them.
What do you think? I'm curious to hear what people's opinions are. Has your attitude changed with the new president? What kinds of things would you like to see the U.S. doing to improve relations with other countries.
