    The fact that the next president of the United States could be a black man has to repair at least some of the damage to our world image done by the current administration. Excellent shot. I'd love to hear the guy in the photo's opinion of it.

    It's interesting to see someone in such a faraway place watch our political process with more apparent interest than we do. I disagree with Bryan who thinks a half-white man will repair the damage Bush has done to the world's perception of the United States. We should be able to look past skin color. That's shallow.
