The World Should Vote for U.S. President

Barack Obama gave an inspiring, uplifting speech today to 200,000 people in Berlin, Germany. Not to be outdone, John McCain woodenly told 200 people today in Berlin, Ohio, that they're the only Berliners whose vote counts. But why can't Germans and people from all over the world also vote for President of the United States?

Most Europeans and people from other countries are more knowledgeable about the U.S. than Americans are. They're more intellectual, aware, and more liberal- just the kind of people you want to vote for President of the United States.

In Berlin, Germany, the audience roared at Obama's line about bringing down walls between Arabs, Muslims, Jews and Christians. In Berlin, Ohio, some audience members said McCain was the only All-American candidate. So who sounds better qualified to vote for President?

I'm not asking to disenfranchise "hardworking white Americans"(I plagerized that term from Hillary). I'm just saying that in addition to the largely uninformed American electorate, let's open up our election process to Germans and Swedes, Palestinians and Israelis, Africans and Indians, and yes, Colombians and Salvadorans too.

But if the whole world got to vote, you might ask, wouldn't they tend to vote for liberal Democratic candidates? Exactly.

And when the whole world voted for President of the United States, if the Supreme Court tried to steal the election, there would be millions of Europeans and Asians and Africans protesting in the streets of their countries. Something that just doesn't happen here in America.

The biggest challenge for any U.S. President is to get along with the rest of the world. Getting the rest of the world to help choose our President will go a long way towards bringing all of us together in peace.

Scott, Good points on the international voting. After all, the U.S. has long had such priveleges abroad. We have been able to "vote" out Saddam Hussein when we didn't want him in office anymore, as well as leaders in pretty much all the latin American countries at one point or another. Surely it's time to allow some reciprocation!

You're a good comedian! I've lived in the US for six years as a permanent resident, and even I can't vote in the presidential election.
