US Ambassador on Presidential Contest

Published fredag 13 juni 2008 kl 09.07
US Ambassador Michael Wood

The US primary season is over and we finally have two (presumptive) presidential candidates: John McCain of the Republicans and Barack Obama of the Democrats. Swedes and Swedish media have been following the primary process more intensively than ever before.

Why is that? Because of the millions of Americans with Swedish background? Or because of the fact that people have become tired of George W. Bush, a president even many Swedes never loved? Michael Wood, the US Ambassador to Sweden, agrees with both explanations - and warns Swedes of blindly embracing Obama, the alleged candidate of change.
