David Cameron, Obama fan
As the leader of the U.K.'s Conservative Party waits to learn whether he'll become prime minister, here is a video he put online in November 2008 -- his reaction, from inside his home, to the election of President Barack Obama.
"What an incredible night it was!" says Cameron, poring over newspaper headlines. "An incredible moment not just for America, but also for the world. I think it'll mean people looking again, and looking fresh at America. I think that's good for America and actually good for everyone."
Since then, of course, Obama campaign and White House veteran Anita Dunn helped out Cameron's conservatives on their media strategy. American conservatives will celebrate a Tory victory if it happens, but Cameron will likely get along better with Obama than, say, any member of our GOP.
