I have been intrigued and at times amused by the political agitation taking place in Europe on behalf of Barack Obama’s US Presidential campaign.

Some of the vocal Obama supporters seem to forget that it is realistic to expect that whoever wins the elections will put America’s best interests to the forefront and in relation to the rest of the world, their potential policies would not differ all that much. Where their stance is truly different is on issues that affect US citizens directly, particularly those belonging to the increasingly ambiguously defined middle class.

I certainly hope all Europeans so involved with the issues surrounding the US elections will be as active next year during EU’s elections. Not to mention the ones in their own individual countries. Those might indeed affect us.
