Watching from the sidelines…I'm the same here in the UK, except I'll be staying awake all night to watch the TV coverage biting my nails on the edge of my seat. I have a lot of American friends and know how dearly this affects them…it affects us in the UK quite distinctly too so my fingers, toes and everything is firmly crossed for Obama. For one thing, McCain's preference for continuing a war that is costing the US so many billions when they're in a dire financial crisis is a dangerous, foolish thing to even contemplate.
I hope all the coverage of this is pushing one thing into the minds of people everywhere – GO AND VOTE. Many people don't even have the right to; we are the lucky ones – exercise that right!!
