From Overseas

Janet Daley of the Telegraph thinks that McCain could beat Obama.

To European eyes (and to some American ones, too) this is an election to determine how America sees itself: can it elect its first black president? Can it present itself to the world in an entirely new guise – as a member of the modern European club of social democratic societies?

But to most Americans – the ones who are less beguiled by rhetoric and more concerned with financial survival, and those who need practical reassurance more than inspiration – this election will be about proven character and tested judgment.

Hopefully.

UPDATE: The ever entertaining Mark Steyn on Barack.
