Translation: A black man has been elected president of the United States for the first time in history. The podium says, “The Era of New Progressivism.” Cheong Wa Dae said that President Lee Myung-bak and President-elect Barack Obama share the same political philosophy. Many people think that this is a joke, because Lee’s ideology is conservative, not progressive.
The word “Moderate” obviously doesn’t exist in the South Korean political lexicon.
