Obama’s First Weekly YouTube Address

It’s interesting to me that he starts with the recognition that the only way out of this financial mess is a coordinated global action and ends with this comment:

In this country, we rise and fall as one nation, one people, and that’s how we’ll meet the challenges of this time, together.

Of course that’s true, but in fact in the world we live in now, we rise and fall as one world, one people, and as Obama said at the start we’ll have to meet the challenges of this time as one world, acting together.
