Clara Listensprechen: Global Radio Listeners Debate US Politics.

The views expressed by the panel were from both sides of the political aisle (in U.S. terms) and where there was a difference of views, Ros Atkins put it to an audience vote and it sounded like the audience was not much in favor of the Republican-leaning opinions expressed. The major resolved issues coming out of the debate were:

* The next U.S. president should listen more to the rest of the world and then assist in a fair manner; as Kantathi Supamongkhon put it: “listen listen listen listen!”

* The U. S. isn’t fair about presenting the problem in Georgia. The U. S. recognition of Kosovo is integral in what happened in Georgia and with Russia’s new attitude.

* Consumer confidence is the problem with the economy; global trade, budget, government spending still debatable.

* Neither candidate wants to address the immigration issue although it’s still an important one.
