One vote at a time

Even if I am German and living I don’t know how many miles away from the United States, this year’s US election finds me quite fascinated and engaged. I’d have to go back to the beginning of my American Literature studies and the 1996 election where I was a guest at the America House Hamburg, witnessing at night how Clinton got re-elected.

This year, with a different, more adult look at world politics and especially on the last eight years, I find myself rooting for Barack Obama, hoping for change, to steal some of his keywords. If you have 20 minutes, watch this piece by Lawrence Lessig, on why he is for Obama and not Hillary Clinton.
