"Democrat Fascination"

Center-right national circulation daily O Estado de S. Paulo (1/10)
editorialized: "In addition to the natural impact of the
dramatization of politics in the media, there are several factors
combined to explain the unprecedented interest in the complicated
process, especially because it seems focused on only one party, the
Democratic, which has been in the opposition for eight years and now
has everything to return to the White House in November.... What
monopolizes the world's attention at the moment is the identity of
the Democrat candidate, whose responsibility will be to restore the
U.S. moral leadership that George W. Bush diligently dilapidated.
The main reason for such a curiosity is the expectation that the
president to be inaugurated in January 2009 will be what none of the
predecessors was: either a woman, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, or
an Afro American, Senator Barack Hussein Obama."
