The US ship of state

Jack Waterford reflects on Obama’s farewell speech in today’s Canberra Times: “[E}ven after the appropriate discounts, is it not thrilling to sometimes hear a politician appeal to the better parts of our nature? To optimism and to nobility?”

How to sum up the Obama era in one picture? Ha, obviously, you can’t. Contrary to the cliché, a good thousand words runs rings around any picture, and in this case I’ll take 5,770 from Gary Younge.
