On January 20th, 2009 Barack Hussain Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States Of America, after winning the 2008 Presidential election. He will be the first African-American President of the US. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a Luo from Nyang’oma Kogelo, Nyanza Province, Kenya, and Ann Dunham, a white American from Wichita, Kansas, Obama was raised mostly by his mother after his parents divorced in 1964. He is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, he became the first African American to serve as president of the Harvard Law Review.
Based on all the hype, reaction & opinions, I doubt if there was a preisdent more destined to take up the reins in recent memory. He will have a lot of will have a lot of living up to do and the whole world will be watching. He has the enviable task of taking charge while the US is in the middle of a finiancial recession and they expect him to solve the problems. One thing in his favour – he has to be better than Dubya! No efforts necessary there
So when we left the 6 of them, Chandler & Monica proposed to each other and they get engaged. In the midst of the celebration Rachel feels lonley and almost sleeps with Ross, much to Monica’s chagrin. Next Joey finds Rachel’s erotic novel and makes fun of her, until she retorts back and he gets scared. Rachel gets to pick an assistant and choses the handsome Tag Jones, who she soon will have an affair with. Mac & CHEESE is cancelled and after searching for a role, Joey is offered the role of Stryker Ramorray.
In a hilarious situation Joey & Ross take a nap together and find that they both enjot it, while Rachel & Pheobe compete to be the maid of honour.
