Lots of reflection on U.S. politics from Germany today. According to Der Spiegel there is no distress about seeing the last of Bush:
In the same publication, Ralf Beste and Konstantin von Hammerstein reveal a German view of McCain, who they call "a choleric hardliner." Some of the anecdotes they record need to be heard on this side of the ocean.
On the other hand, the Germans have caught Obamamania. They want some of the spirit of the Democratic candidate's campaign.
I literally don't remember the last time anything about this country inspired anyone elsewhere. Do you?
