Dear Mr. Izzard,
I have not watched the news, read newspapers or listened to radio the last few days. I can’t handle the suspense… Thank goodness the election is tomorrow so we can have it over and done with. Over here, of course, everything happens during the night, so I am getting up at 5.30 Wednesday morning, I’ll make myself a really nice cup of coffee, switch on the TV and hopefully they will tell me that Obama is the next president of the United States of America. It feels like they have been campaigning forever, which I guess they have, but before the actual campaigning started you had the whole Obama/Hilary thing, which seemed to go on forever too. Well in a few hours time it will all come to an end – a happy end I hope!
And by the way, have you seen this website: http://iftheworldcouldvote.com? It is made by some Icelandic guys, and it is so brilliant! I tell you now – leave it to the Icelandic’s to come up with something as clever as this! (Just don’t trust them with your money…) This is exactly what I was talking about in one of my earlier letters. This show quite clearly who should win tomorrow, and I just hope the Americans will follow the rest of the world on this one. Well except Albania and Macedonia, where McCain is up, and in Lesotho where there is a tie.
Until after the election, take care.
