Victory for Obama: The cartoonists' view
November 6, 2008 in General
The time difference between the UK and the USA meant that newspapers here were unable to report the victory of Barack Obama the day after the election. So British cartoonists had another day to gather their thoughts, and we saw the results yesterday.
Mac in the Daily Mail had Obama beating racism, to make it to the White House while Matt Buck at Channel 4 News noted how that famous address is changed for ever. Nicholas Garland in The Telegraph took an interesting sideways slant, with a quote from Martin Luther King.
It will be fascinating, of course, to see how cartoonists will react once Obama is doing the job of President, when the news stories are not all positive.
