And guess who's singing 'Obamaself'?

The Taipei Times says the People's Liberation Army is the power behind the throne in Beijing, and only time will tell if Xi Jinping is really in charge. On Obama's win, one cartoon in the Australian press shows a Hispanic voter saying: "this really restores my faith in American demography". And which tune could Obama be humming? The Seventies classic "Obamaself", perhaps? Join us for this look at the world press on Thursday 8th November, 2012.

The China Daily's front page headlines: “Tackling graft is the priority”.

The Taiwan paper The Taipei Times has a comment piece that argues the People’s Liberation Army is the “power behind the throne” in Chinese politics.

The Chinese Digital Times looks at how netizens in China are getting round internet censorship with the word ‘sparta’, amid a security crackdown in Beijing.

The cartoon in The South China Morning Post shows a Chinese panda consoling a US Republican elephant with the words: “Maybe it is you that needs some political reform”.

Another cartoon, this time in The Australian, shows the Dad of a Hispanic family watching Obama’s win saying: “This really restores my faith in American demography”.

A comment piece in The International Herald Tribune argues that Obama’s re-election means the “age of Reagan is officially over”.

And a mock-up photo in the comedy section of The Huffington Post online shows Obama with a broad smile and perhaps singing to himself. The tune? Obamaself.
