Re: Non-Americans and the upcoming election

I don't really understand the "Obama phenomenon". He seems to be a lot of empty rhetoric to me. And I'm not too sure he's actually going to follow up on whatever he's been saying. I wonder if it's even possible. :|

@Mercurius, I agree. Beyond Good and Evil was more biting, but that maybe because Thus Spake Zarathustra is so profusely poetic.
