Obama seems to be the winner
The American polls have pretty much all come together and are showing Obama on over 50% of the vote, so that seems to be that: Obama will be the next president.
For the working class activists it is time to batten down the hatches and wait until the left's love affair with the Illinois senator has worn off. Your friendly old Exile reckons that we will have to wait about a year or so before things get back to normal.
In the meantime, although the USA is going to have to take a back burner, that does not mean that we should ignore international matters - let's not forget that we still have the European Union that needs to be undermined. The aim as always is to chip away at capitalism's legitimacy and if presenting Britain as a puppet of the USA is no longer a goer, then we can cast a baleful gaze at Brussels instead.
