    This is an interesting article...

    "The election of Barack Obama to the presidency may signal more than the end of an era of Republican presidential dominance and conservative ideology. It may mark the beginning of a Fourth Republic of the United States."

    An interesting article. Never thought of the USA's history being divided into distinct Republics, but it actually makes a lot of sense. This may be the last Republic in which the US is paramount in the world. There is a possibility that China will pass the US in terms of economic size several years earlier than expected due to the current recession.
