World 'wants Kerry as president'

From the BBC:

World 'wants Kerry as president'

A new poll in 35 countries suggests that people around the world would prefer Democratic challenger John Kerry as US president over George W Bush.

"Kerry would win handily if the people of the world were to elect the US president"
Steven Kull, Maryland University

Steven Kull, brilliant stuff. That's why we call them "soverign democracies". George Bush is NOT the WORLD'S president, he is the President of the United States. Only. How would the Norwegians (74% Kerry, 7% Bush) feel is the same question were asked of Americans if they preferred Kjell Magne Bondevik or Kristin Halvorsen as Prime Minister? The answer would be very telling. Who?

How about this? FatherMcKenzie readers, vote now! Who do you want to see elected Prime Minister of Norway? Results soon...
