St. Obama, can you fix my son's visa?

So, now that Obama has won, the questions aren’t:
Whoareyougoingtovotefor/didyouvote/whowillwin blah blah
Now the comments go like this at my 10:15 tea break:
English Person with Cup of Tea: “I bet you are so happy that Obama won, huh?”
Me: “Yes, thank goodness”, nodding my head politely.
E.P.W.C.O.T: Now I sure hope he is going to do something about (now fill in the blank from these choices:)
the War in Iraq!
the War in Afghanistan!
Peace for the Middle East!!
World Peace in general!
Helping the environment!
Giving Americans a better reputation!
My son’s Visa application problem !
Me: “I hope so too!”, enthusiastically smiling. But really thinking he’s not YOUR president. Get your own! Change Britain’s patriarchal system and you could have one too!! How do I know if he is going to solve all the world’s problems? Bugger off (oh wait that last thought is too British!) he’s not a miracle worker! Quick, drink your tea!
I then look at my watch, smile politely, rinse my tea cup and walk away to go back to my harp teaching.
