Overseas Republicans claim that their votes were decisive in putting G.W. Bush into the White House. Diana Kerry, one of Senator Kerry’s sisters, drew a lunchtime crowd of more than 100 in Munich today. Not bad for a surrogate during the middle of a work day six months before the election. It’ll be hard to specify the impact of the estimated 5 million Americans who live overseas. But it’s safe to say the Democrats abroad are taking aim at their Republican counterparts’ boast.
I’m told the outcome of this little contest may have an impact in Europe, and elsewhere.
