There's something about him...

History was made today when Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States of America, and millions of people turned out all over the country to celebrate the new President's inauguration at the White House.

Early indications are, that President Obama is proving extremely popular with one section of the electorate - African-Americans. It's not known why this is be the case.

Political analysts have been unable to determine just what it is that has made the African-American so popular.

Obama is devoutly religious, he is a family man, he loves his country and he loves the US people, but the same could sometimes be said of his predecessor, George W. Bush, so the conundrum is no nearer being solved.

The new President was sworn in today in Washington where a crowd of more than 100million people cheered and sang his name in soulful chimes, whilst a reggae band played in the background.

One soulful chimer, Ned 'Red' Dawkins, of Alabama, said:

"I cayn't put my finger ornit. There's just somethin' abaht'm!"
