There has certainly been a huge amount of comment around the Palin pick. As I said over at No Minister.
I have certainly been entertaining myself over at hard news(we are over 500 comments & counting), so guilty as charged your honour.
I think the single thing that defines if is that Palin & the reason she is on the ticket took on corruption in her own party and won.
Obama would be an interesting but risky choice for the world. I dont like his 130 high indecision and I dont like his attitude to trade.
Insofar as how it impacts. We are all citizens of the world. I have ties to 3 countries, one of which was liberated from oppression by the US of A. I like what McCain has to say about improving democracy.
