If the rest of the world could vote for the U.S. President!

So let's just say you're bored. You've got nothing else to do and you somehow ended up here at this post. You're tired of all of the election hoopla on the radio, television, and Internet. But not really. Are you? You're looking for that one last tiny bit of information to stuff in you already overloaded head. You were curious about how the rest of the world feels about the two U.S. presidential candidates and you were wondering how the world would vote. Weren't you?

Wonder no more.... This link is going around the globe in an email and the numbers are increasing. Cast your vote or just follow the link and click on the results tab in the upper left corner to see how the rest of the world is lining up. The nice thing is you can see how the vote breaks down per country. As of the writing, approximately 438,300 people have voted.

Follow this link: If the world could vote.

I'll confess. I voted twice. The site automatically detects your location. But I voted once in Australia last week and once in the U.S today. I promise not to vote anymore.

I've just noticed that my blog buddy Pentad has a similar link on her site. Follow this link to compare notes: Interactive Election World Map

Wow. Not even a contest.

You are in an unusual position, having regular contact outside the US. I'd be interested in the degree of importance our presidential race holds to outsiders. Our national image/role seems so greatly diminished, tarnished...

I'm in the "unusual position" of voicing some of the political ads for this election. It's a constant "reacting to the reaction" mentality. People live off of this sort of adrenaline. Too many analogies to write in this space; I'll stop with that observation...
