What changes will Barack make to the world?

One change Barack Obama has made was that he was America's first black president, and that made him a role model for young people of color. Mr. Obama's speaking style is also very different from that of his predecessor, President Bush: Barack Obama became known for his belief in diplomacy and his reticence to "talk tough." As a result, in many European countries, his election was greeted with great enthusiasm, and he is still very popular in some of these countries.
But it is difficult in our global age for any one leader-- whether Barack Obama or anyone else-- to change the entire world. The withdrawal of American troops from Iraq was certainly popular in America and a number of other countries, but it remains to be seen whether other policies Mr. Obama has championed will have an impact on the rest of the world.
