What is he thinking???

Is Obama's campaign really stupid enough to assume this and Gordon Brown - the British Prime Minister who supported Obama in a British magazine article - will help him? If I had any interest in him at all, this certainly would have ended it; and I would bet this information is stampeding thinking Americans away from him at a pace the polls will have difficulty tracking!

"Obama Passes the Global Test

The Republican Convention and the debut of Sarah Palin might have given John McCain a "bounce" in the polls, but the BBC notes a severe weakness in the GOP nominee's support:

People outside the US would prefer Barack Obama to become US president ahead of John McCain, a BBC World Service poll suggests.

Democrat Mr Obama was favoured by a four-to-one margin across the 22,500 people polled in 22 countries.

Here's a complete list of the countries included in the poll, along with the number of electoral votes in each:
• Australia (0)
• Brazil (0)
• Canada (0)
• China (0)
• Egypt (0)
• France (0)
• Germany (0)
• India (0)
• Indonesia (0)
• Italy (0)
• Kenya (0)
• Lebanon (0)
• Mexico (0)
• Nigeria (0)
• Panama (0)
• Philippines (0)
• Poland (0)
• Russia (0)
• Singapore (0)
• Turkey (0)
• United Arab Emirates (0)
• United Kingdom (0)

In case you don't get the picture, blogger Michael Asher has a map."
