That's another bag of worms. Quite a few people seem concerned with who people in other countries want our president to be. I can't get the fall of Rome out of my head when I think about these people.
Sarkozy, our president, seems to be more popular in the US (if truly american cares about french politics) than in France... So, see, it's reverse.
This said, I actually understand what you mean. (Even though, I kinda like Obama too and not really Mc Cain who seems to be so mean!! But maybe im influenced by french news)
