Vote in the Global Election

The Economist argues that the U.S. Presidential election has global implications, so it would only be fair if a global electorate got to choose. This isn't how the Constitution is written, of course, but it is an interesting idea.

The Economist has created a website where "global citizens" can vote regardless of their home country. You can check it out (and cast your vote) here:

You'll find a lot of policy information on this website, too.

Bénin is wildly pro-Obama, and I heard the US embassy in Lomé, Togo had to put up a sign that says "Only American citizens can vote in the US election" because so many Togolese had been demanding to vote for Obama! Hi to everyone in the IPE department!
