One night a few weeks ago CNBC Asia brought in Asian based political scientists to brief viewers there on the US elections. The Obama briefer was an Indonesian college professor that had grown up with Obama. His points: (1) If Obama was elected, he thought overnight half the anti-US sentiment in the world would vanish. (2) It would be very destabilizing in the most virulently anti-American regimes. The idea here is there'd appear to people, particularly young men, an inherent contradiction in how The Great Satan could elect somebody named Barack Hussein Obama President. They'd see wild world wide popularity of this youthful black JFK type with a Muslim background and it wouldn't be long before they'd be asking why they couldn't have a leader like that. What do you say to this argument?
