USA election and EU link

I know that Britain's best interests are served by close co-operation with our neighbours in the EU - particularly to deal with global issues like climate change. (I'm just back from leading a fact-finding trip to Brussels for a group of Lib Dems - pictures).

But I also know that what happens in the USA election will impact on us this side of the pond. To see how the election is going I sometimes look at the website below. Looks like a Democrat President, Senate and House of Representatives is on the cards for the first time since the Bill Clinton high point!

Barack Obama and John McCain spoke this week at the Alfred E Smith Memorial Dinner in New York City. A very entertaining 30 minutes out of the campaign battle. The McCain speech is first, in two sections, then Obama also in two sections.
