As an American in the UK, I'm clearly worried but far away from what's happening. This is distressing for me, but I'm still online and able to watch what's going on, so that's a small consolation.
So far it's fair to say that no one I've talked to is thinking that McCain has a chance, but more importantly, many people over here simply assume that the voter suppression in the US has been directed by Republicans. There's clearly an assumption that the Republicans are corrupt and are willing to do anything to win. The debate in the US is non-existent over here.
It's also interesting to note that the BBC pundits are openly laughing about the choice of Sarah Palin as McCain's VP choice. While there's been a lot of amusement/horror over here regarding the choice of Palin, there appears to be a sense of relief at the poll numbers suggesting that Obama will likely win.
The poll results, of course, still tell us nothing so far, but I'm hoping. The UK is hoping. The world is hoping. Please, US, don't let us down. We've been a laughing stock for the last eight years. We can finally turn this around.
