Obama topic introduced a few seconds in to this approx. 8 min clip.
From Dateline London, a BBC News 24 program featuring foreign correspondents discussing current affairs.
This is the full segment focusing on Obama from the 25 February 2008 program. It's about a 9-minute excerpt of a half hour program.
In general, I don't think the attitudes of others, even our allies, should have too much bearing on US elections. But since the US is at such a low ebb in worldwide opinion, it's a bit more important now. Here are four London-based journalists, from four different countries, discussing Barack Obama and his candidacy.
The host is Gavin Esler. The panelists are:
- Shahed Sadullah The Daily Jang (Pakistan)
- Rashmee Roshan Lall, The Times of India, etc.
- Yasmin Alibhai Brown, Ugandan-born, writes for The Independent
- Michael Goldfarb, American Writer and Broadcaster
It's amazing how much information these folks in the UK have about the US elections--far more than I do about any British election.
