#2 President Obama, as the first African-American leader of the United States, carries a special global burden of not only ending the American recession but also leading the way in dealing with global economic woes. The son of a Kenyan father, he has the weight of extraordinary expectations among Africans in the Diaspora, and in Africa. The Obama Administration should create verifiable avenues for Diaspora members to actively participate in the implementation of United States policy to Africa. In a forthcoming article, I will address specific technical and operational areas where the Diaspora can have a major impact on Africa's development

Total BS! If we'd managed to elect someone with British ancestry, we'd also be responsible for them? I don't think so!

#4 W. Bush did far more than any US president for Africa, and this is quietly acknowledged both within and outside Africa. This level of support was so great that it would be nearly impossible for Obama to best.

#6 I imagine his "support" would be basically the same amount he has bestowed on his extended family there....namely, bupkis.
