Preview of tomorrow's London newspaper front pages

The serious papers --
Guardian: America's Historic Verdict (photo of Obama voting)
Independent: The History Man (with Obama head shot)
Telegraph (I think): Obama takes his place in history
Times: History beckons as US goes to polls in record numbers
Daily Express (a paper that advertises that it's still only 40p): A New World Dawns
Financial Times: Some photo montage and opaque copy (nothing new there)

And the tabloids --
Daily Star: Yanks Very Much! (Next to scantily clad Abby Clancy "in thigh high boots")
Mirror: Gobama!
Sun (Britain's biggest circulation newspaper): Obarmy Army

And this gem, when talking with amazement about Americans waiting in line to vote: "This is a nation of fast food and low attention spans."

In 2004 the Daily Mirror's front page headline read:
How can 59,054,087 people be so dumb?
