"I know he's not John Wayne"

Regardless of who we vote for or where we vote, this is an amazing NPR story about the waves the US election is making in Kenya. It reveals the hope and the scars of racism and sexism that extend far outside the US. On a joyous note, Coco Tea's song made me smile as much as the comment about a "woman's place" made me cringe. Women politicians being physically beaten in Kenya highlights how far there is to go.

Also interesting that wikipedia is a battle ground for the election. It is simply amazing that you have a living and breathing (computer monitored) entry on Clinton and Obama.
