A Reader's Digest poll of 17,000 people in 17 countries on every continent revealed that if the world could vote, there would be a landslide victory for Obama. Other polls have shown similar results.
In Australia, 90% of people said they would vote for Obama, and only 10% for McCain.
In most other countries, the vote was between 85-90% for Obama.
Unfortunately, the world didn't get to vote, but the American people showed today that they are still plugged into world opinion. The world wants a strong America - an America of which we can be proud as a global community. The world doesn't hate America - but the world fears an America which does not stand by the principles on which it was founded.
I think I can speak for many, if not most of we non-Americans tonight by saying, "American people - the world is proud of you, and the world thanks you for your wisdom!"
