    Well written. McCain will be just another Bush. We need change!

    Bragi Thor

    These elections will be one of the most important in US history, I hope that the US will do the right thing a vote for change for the better!

    The one thing that I think Mr. Obama will do for our country is to get the rest of the world being friends with the U.S. again.

    I wish Ron Paul had won. We have a great constitution when we follow it. :)

    It is your responsibility to get the Finnish Economy rolling again, right? :)

    What are housing prices in Finland like now?

    Much Love,

    John McCain is the only thing that will keep our country from becoming a communist country like Obama wants. We don't care what the world thinks... we are the greatest country in the world because we don't listen to what other countries think!!!

    This vote is historic - not just because we may elect a black man or a white woman to one of the highest offices in the land.

    Believe it or not, there are many in the USA who recognize our responsibility to the rest of the world and know we've not done a good job of working with other nations. I truly hope my fellow Americans and I can demonstrate we are not as stupid and arrogant as many think.

    BTW, I'm not a liberal or Democrat. I've voted Republican more often than Democrat, but in this case, we have to change our direction and recognize the Republican "worldview" is sadly distorted. We have to change before it's too late.

    Do we really think that the world has OUR best interest in mind?

    Johan

    Not that I don't agree with some of the points on "what the world wants", but who made you our spokesperson?

    Since this website of yours is becoming increasingly popular, it should be your duty to mention that this is just your opinion.

    Of course you don't have to do that.

    Who would the World Elect

    Did you see http://www.WhoWouldTheWorldElect.com before you did the site?

    And it's AMAZING the number of people that have voted on your site.

    Excellent work. You are one skillful marketer!

    @dk Finnish economy? Don't know. But the Icelandic economy is finish-ed ;) On a serious level, housing prices are about half of what they were few months ago (due to currency) and are expected to fall up to further 50%. Personally, I don't think it will be that bad, but if you'd like me to find you a nice holiday partment in Reykjavik, one of the hottest night life spots in Europe, just let me know. Even the beer is cheap at the moment ;)

    @maverick lol

    @robin We know you're not all that bad. We'll see how many of you are today ;)

    @jst2se Why do so many Americans believe that the best for the world can somehow not be the same as what is best for the US? Isn't US a part of the world?

    @johan We're not talking about my opinion. We're talking about the opinion of close to a million people world wide. The opinion of hte world is clear but my writing about what it means, is clearly my analysis and interpretation of the results.

    @whotheworldwouldelect Thanks for the kind words. I didn't see your site until after we started ours, but I have visited it a few times. We soon realized when we started that we were not the only one nor the first, but we've managed to become the biggest and most widespread.
