After many long years of campaigning, people across the U.S. finally cast their ballots in an historic election and voted for president-elect Barack Obama. This presidential election dominated the news headlines worldwide. We all couldn’t vote, but we all can have an opinion!
Regardless of your political leanings, was there anything that surprised you about this election? Anything strike you as inspirational, interesting, unusual, helpful, or funny?
Question: What 3 things surprised you about the U.S. Election?
- Comedy and Tina Fey. Comedians love a good political joke. But Saturday Night Live and Tina Fey’s impersonations went surprisingly viral.
- The Internet. Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter were huge sources of election coverage and campaigning. Is television dead?
