Since things are finally rolling on the presidential campaign here in the US, and Barack Obama won a huge suprise victory in the first contest yesterday, I wanted to ask a question:
How does the American president/leadership influence how you feel about America in general? Does it influence your desire to visit here one way or the other?
Also, what would Obama (Kenyan father from Hawaii, white mother from Kansas, childhood in Indonesia, opposed Iraq war from the start) as president say to you or your countrymates? Would it improve your perception of America/Americans or not?
(ps... I love reading up on local/regional politics when I travel abroad. Not only fascinating, but also usually impresses people who assume we Americans don't know about anything beyond our shores!)
