More evidence of US politics as world precedent

Friday, November 14, 2008 by Dave Winer.

I loved this bit on ThinkProgress.  Permalink to this paragraph

French President Sarkozy talking to Russian Prime Minister Putin. "Do you want to end up like Bush?' Mr. Putin was briefly lost for words, then said: 'Ah -- you have scored a point there.'" Permalink to this paragraph

How well do Sarkozy and Putin understand that, unless they organize their people on the Internet first, Obama might do it for them. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph

One more thing -- what a missed opportunity had we not elected Obama. Permalink to this paragraph

Update: In Israel, candidate Netanyahu's site is a clone of Obama's. Of course. There will be many more, all over the world.  Permalink to this paragraph
