If the world could vote…

October 13th, 2008

Martin sent me a link to this quite interesting site – if the world could vote for the US president, whom would you pick?

Now, this is a cute idea, though of course the rest of us won’t have to live with the domestic decisions, the tax burden, the healthcare system etc. of whomever gets chosen. And I wish it had been done by somebody inside the country rather than an outsider.

None the less, it’s valuable data, so as long as you can say with a clear conscience that you wouldn’t mind Americans making suggestions about your next leader, cast your vote!
