Who wants Obama?

A majority of folks in the wider world want to see him elected, says the BBC, which claims to have polled people in a bunch of countries concerning their preference to win the American presidential contest.

Hmmm. So how many of those folks in Germany or Mauritania would take Americans' advice as to whom THEY ought to elect?

And how many of you suspect that this news will make Obama's poll numbers here in the U.S. go down, not up? Americans don't like to be lectured by a lot of folks in other countries who, frankly, have a whole bunch of faults of their own to worry about.
