Europe's enthralled by U.S. presidential race

....it's probably not surprising that many Europeans are resentful that only Americans will have a say in it. European media are saturated with election coverage that is heavily biased in favor of the Democrats..
......"Many Britons will feel it would be rather nice to have a vote, too. Well, maybe not a whole vote: I would settle for one worth 50 per cent of those cast by American citizens. After all, since we are a strategic colony of the US, it would be nice to have even a marginal say in how the empire chooses to dispose our goodwill and our blood and treasure."


According to the London-based Economist,


"Nor is European enthusiasm for either candidate likely to survive the election of Mrs Clinton, Mr Obama, or whoever else becomes president. The person who gets voters' nod will rule as an American, promoting American interests around the world-and no doubt disappointing many watchers from abroad. For Europeans to imagine anything else would be naive indeed."

"...inconsistencies in U.S. policies may not be surprising, he said, given that Washington's diplomatic and trade policies have entered a phase of transition into the next administration.

Except for matters of crucial importance to American interests, one should perhaps not expect any coherent U.S. diplomatic policies based on long-term perspectives until the end of the 2008 campaign, Tanaka said. "So for the coming 1 1/2 years, East Asia will probably have to live with a directionless U.S. policy toward the region," the professor said."
