Gideon Rachman: Buzzkill

From FT:
Obama himself was particularly energetic and euphoric - "pumped" is the term, I think. But I'm afraid - much as I would have loved to have loved him - his speech left me pretty cold. Perhaps I am a cynical European; perhaps I am jet-lagged. But all that "only in America", "unity not division", "politics of hope" stuff doesn't get me out of my seat. Still, Obama is clearly bright, charismatic and the man to beat.
Harsh ...
