Analysis: If others could vote in the U.S.
WASHINGTON, June 9 (UPI) -- If the people of the Middle East could vote in the U.S. presidential elections, chances are they would have voted in favor of Sen. Barack Obama over his Democratic rival, Sen. Hillary Clinton, or his political opponent, Republican Sen. John McCain. But that was last week. In the short span of a few days, much has changed in the delicate juggling act that ties American domestic politicking to the more Machiavellian politics of the Levant, the lands of Arabia and of the Persians.
