Don't see how it's of any relevance to this particular topic, but I have to correct you. I have not seen a lot of the country, but I have been to the US.
I'll let you judge. Here are the places I've been in Europe: Spain, France, Switzerland, Italy, Sweden, Netherlands, Germany, Malta, Belgium, Czech republic, and Britain. Definitely not most, but I'm probably half your age so...
Again, not that it matters but I'm a man. I've told you that many times, yet you insist on using female pronouns when referring to me. Is it supposed to be derogatory? In that case, you have some serious maturing to do.
Listen, I like being put on a pedestal as much as the next guy, but giving me credit for influencing European elections is way over the edge.
It's always nice to see countries getting closer to each other. If anything, it helps work out differences and gain perspective on things. However, European leaders are not elected on the basis of how close they are to the US. They can, however, get sacked for supporting what's essentially a war of aggression.
The political climate in Europe doesn't resemble what's taking place across the pond. Your presidential candidates speak a lot about foreign policy for a good reason: Because Americans are dying as we speak and the economy is getting drained because of the war. In Europe, people talk about health, safety, taxes, immigration and the only foreign policy topic that gets any coverage (and is of any relevance to the voters) is the future of the European Union (constitution, Euro, etc...)
Everybody's pro-US around here. Everybody respects the sovereignty of your country and admires your successes. But it doesn't mean they gotta support a murderous US president when he decides to embark on a killing spree. See the difference?
