    that'd be gall, and what's upsetting you? I've been trying to influence this election for ages. If you go to http://www.guardian.co.uk/g2/story/0,,1329728,00.html they've printed a load of responses - a lot of them negative.

    Yes it was a dumb idea, here's the link: http://guardian.assets.digivault.co.uk/clark_county/
    However how's it really different from this link:
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/uselection...330503,00.html
    Where the Russian president is endorsing Bush?
    People (including the US government) try and influence other countries elections all the time, get used to it.

    What strike me is the tone-deafness of The Guardian. Generally speaking, Americans don't like being told what to do by foreigners, and I think the only people who will react positively are Kerry supporters. In other words, preaching to the choir.

    I think you all are making the mistake of assuming the average American even knows who the Guardian is. No one will notice.

    As for me, I'd like to see whom the Economist endorses, if anyone.

    They WILL know once Guardian readers start lecturing them on who they should vote for.

    For the record I think it was a stupid idea too, I can understand people being upset by meddling like this, and that is what it is. I certainly wouldn't be too happy for any American or Frenchman or anyone else I don't know to tell me I should vote Labour because they like Tony Blair. I'm quite happy to do it within the confines of this forum, but I'm not quite unknown here, although no-one here has ever met me so in a real sense I am, but I think you know what I mean.

    Putin doesn't need a newspaper to get the message through, it was in all the media worldwide. You may have not noticed it as an attempt of foreign influence on US voters due to some filters that seem to be at work...

    Yawn... another personal attack of the primitive sort. Boring, but what should one expect?

    oh ahem, its clulup again... how drab. well, I've learned to expect nothing more from you as well.
    all you do is instigate. you bring nothing of value or substance, merely attacks and castigation. and THAT is primitive - making your points diplomatically through proof and evidence is sophisticated. you rather prefer obnoxious pretenses, stirring up quarrels. but nothing more can be expected from a snobbish bore such as yourself, clulup. diplomacy and discussion are civilized and sophisticated. your constant digs are nothing more than that - and THAT, dear clulup, is primitive.

    filters that seem to be at work? whatever. likely story. outlandish and based on absolutely no evidence.

    Why would I vote Labour? I've stated before that I'm a liberal democrat! If I was a Labour supporter there wouldn't be much point voting for them here anyway, Labour are by far the smallest party in my constituency (apart from UKIP, BNP, Liberal Party, Socialist Labour Party, Respect, Monster Raving Loony Party, and whoever else decides to stand )
