I’ve seen it noted several times on non-American blogs that all of American politics falls on the right side of things, and here is a good article and discussion of that:
”From a European perspective, US politics are an ongoing battle between the extreme Right and the middle Right. The Republican presidential candidates are really, really scary people in my view. So all of us in the world at large who live under the shadow of US political hegemony are holding our breaths, hoping that Clinton or Obama will make it into office. They're pretty bad, but the alternative would be unspeakably dreadful.”
I guess I’ve become a European, because that is what it looks like to me.
