Just before Christmas an Irish political commentator stated that because of the importance of the upcoming general election in America everyone in the World should have a vote. At first I was in general agreement. It would certain people feel give everyone a say in World affairs. On secondary consideration I said no. What this would mean is that the World for its own vested interest, would be meddling in the internal affairs of the United States.

How many times have people protested over America’s interference in the internal affairs of other countries? For someone in Ireland, Argentina, South Africa or India to have a vote in the American election would be no better.

It’s early days yet but it looks like John Kerry’s going to get the Democratic Party nomination. From a European point of view Kerry looks like a strong Abe Lincoln patrician like figure. He seems to be just the type of individual necessary to be at the helm of America in this critical time in World affairs. But here I am an Irish guy telling the American people which way to vote.
