London-Based American Vote!

americanvote.gifHere’s a bit from the free LondonPaper…”Hillary fans tried to out-cheer backers of Barack Obama in London Tuesday night as they voted in the Super Tuesday primaries.  Police were earlier called to keep order as excited crowds wielding placards queued to get into Prochester Hall in Bayswater.   It the first time the 200,000 London-based Americans had been able to vote in live polls.  Previously they had to have ballots posted.  Turnout was higher than expected at 1,547.  Democrats Abroad spokesman Daniel Rivkin said: “The turnout has been fantastic.”  Provisional results saw Obama trounce Clinton with 871 votes to 422.”  …I think the vote count definitely seems to square as well with how many Brits feel about the election.  They seem more curious and interested in Obama than Clinton.  Although they feel the excitement in the novelty of either one of them being nominated.
