Those things would surprise me, since, in polls actually taken in those countries, they almost universally favor Obama over McCain as the next US President.


Let's assume for now that you're correct about what foreign polls show.

But try, just try for a moment, to apply a little bit of logic to these polls results.

Do you think it more likely that the foreigners of whom you speak want a stronger and more dominant American presence in world affairs, going forward?

I don't. I think the same foreigners who applaud Obama do so precisely because they resent America's "bigfoot" role in foreign affairs. In Obama they recognize someone who will weaken America in the international community, which would make them quite happy.
