Why the whole world wants Barack Obama to win

As I sit and worry about the election, I happened upon this video. It’s telling and insightful. It’s one man’s explanation of why so much of the world — outside the United States — supports Obama.

According to this man, an editor of Ode magazine, it’s not because of his policies per se. It’s because he gets it. He’s part of the wider global community because of his heritage, his background, his mixed race, his childhood in a foreign country, his ethnic name. The world loves Obama for some of the very reasons that the ultra conservatives dislike him.

I found the video compelling. Hope you will, too.
