The US election results from a British perspective

While riding the subway (or "tube" as they call it) from the airport, I saw an interesting headline on the front page of a local London newspaper: "America is looking a bit cool again." I wished I had snapped a photo of it - it was typical London tabloid style - the headline was in such large print it took up the whole front page!

Anyhow, it's promising to think America's world-wide reputation might be on an upswing from steep nose-dive it took over the past several years. Of course, it was just a sensationalistic tabloid headline, so who knows whether world opinion is really changing...
