For Kucinich fans - a fun treat. Rep Becerra, also.
This is from an article about a Russia perspective on the Inauguration and happenings in Moscow last Tuesday.

"For being former Cold War foes, Russians are surprisingly supportive of Barack Obama. Speaking with law students from Moscow State University tonight, I am struck by their knowledge of the American electoral process and their familiarity with the 2008 election. As we search the CNN screens for Obama, one Russian student actually picked out Rep. Xavier Becerra and Kucinich in a line of congressmen filing in. Perhaps this is self-selection at work; those most interested in American politics all meet together to watch the election. But there is something much bigger at play too. "

I recommend reading the entire article to get a flavor of one perspective of the Russian watch.

2. There are often stories about people in other countries knowing more than Americans
about what's going on in our politics.
