Cowboy Frankie in Jacksonville says: I'm amazed and humbled at the level of interest in this election outside the US. The American "brand" has suffered greatly in the last 8 years around the world, and I want that to change....
I wish more of my compatriots understood what this election means to the rest of the world.
A classmate of my daughter's, in other words an 8 year-old French-speaking Belgian schoolgirl, came up to me yesterday afternoon when I collected the girls. Her greeting? "Go Obama!"
With her accent the vowels ran together so it came out more like "Gobama".
I am suspiciously close to being proud of my country.
