Ponderings on the world

I'm quite amazed to learn of Barak Obama's victory in South Carolina. CNN International did an analysis of the exit polls and found that he did the best with younger and better educated voters, whites as well as blacks. He seems to be growing a wide base of support - but is a base that will turn out to vote in November (just in case he does get the nomination)? Can he pull together people? Is Clinton too divisive? With the worries about the American economy, will Americans pull inwards and try to ignore the rest of the world?

It's a very strange perspective, to be on this side of the world.
