My quick thoughts on the US election

I know that the world has been waitiing for my input on this topic.
Speaking as a Brit who lives in the Middle East and works for an American company...
- I would like to see Obama change, as much as is possible, the image the US has abroad.
I am tired of the US' image abroad being that of a wealthy, bullying, ignorant, irritating older cousin that you can't get rid of, whether you want to or not. Let's see something positive.
- I can't believe 55 million people effectively voted for Palin.
George Bush can't really be stupid - you can't become president, surely, by being stupid. So why does George Bush come across as such as twit to many people? The same goes for Palin. How could this woman even get near being vice-president, let along a potential president? It's tragic that a woman like this is seen across the world as someone the American people want to have in a position of power.
