I wonder how long it will take Cameron to halve his approval rating...

World prefers Obama as president
Sydney Morning Herald

WASHINGTON: If Barack Obama were running for leader of the
world, instead of leader of the US, he would probably romp home.

The annual global survey of attitudes by the independent Pew
Research Centre shows that the Democratic nominee for president
has won the confidence of people in Europe, Asia, Africa and
Australia and is strongly preferred as president of the US over
his rival, the Republican John McCain.

In Australia, 80 per cent of participants said they had confidence
in Senator Obama, against 40 per cent for Senator McCain.

Similar results were reported from Britain, France, Germany,
Spain, Japan and Tanzania. American participants in the survey
gave the two senators roughly equal scores.

The poll results came as a presenter on Fox News television was
taken off air after she accused Senator Obama and his wife, Michelle,
of greeting each other with a "terrorist's fist jab".

I dunno, angry Americans are a cause for concern. They'll probably
start another war. Australia could be next, so don't be too smug. Do
you have much oil down there?
