This is not surprising at all. While I was in Asia and Clinton was in– well, let’s say a bit of trouble– the general attitude was, “What are the Americans making such a big fuss for?” Bill Cliton for one reason or another (his policies)seemed on the most part non-threatening to many Koreans (Asians)… there were no radical Aces that were suddenly going to jump out of his sleeve in any given poker game at any given time.

He was views as a smiling– let’s not make too much trouble– and let’s make the world a happy place kind of guy.

Me thinx that when it comes the North and their views on Democrats vs. Republicans– the republicans were seen as warmongers. Thus, this push for Clinton in the North could simply be a push for the Democrats to keep noteriety in the world.
