I saw the following interesting posting comparing Barack Obama to the Dalai Lama on the website of the Center for Strategic and International Studies ‘s CSIS Transatlantic Media Network the other day. It was under the discussion thread on “How Europe Views the United States.”
The article in the German newspaper that is being referred to was written way back in June last year. In gist it says that while the Americans will vote only on November 4, the German public has voted and they have chosen Barack Obama.
CSIS is a highly respected think tank in the United States and is based in Washington, D.C.
