The View From Abroad - Sweden

A reader from Sweden writes:

The Swedes here only ask me one question, "Who will be the next President, Hillary or Obama?" They never ask about the Republicans, and they are so open-minded here it never crosses their minds why we wouldn't want to elect either one for any reason. They see no reason a black man or a woman shouldn't be elected. Some want Hillary because they think the U.S. should be led by a woman, but mostly they have no preference. Also, they don't understand why people dislike Hillary so much.

But Swedes are not the only people here with opinions on the subject.  There are also a lot of immigrants from the middle east and while I have only spoken with a few, one opinion that stuck out was from a Kurdish gentleman who was for Hillary because he thinks she will leave U.S. troops in "Kurdistan" forever.
