Well looks like Bush is going to win - congratulations, every nation gets the leader it deserves as they say. Now what does this mean for Europe? Political commentators over here agree on one thing: if Kerry had won, European nations would probably agree to let their troops stay in Iraq. Now that Bush is re-elected, it's a different story. Then there's also agreement on that the gap between the US and Europe will get wider. That means that the EU is forced to strengthen its efforts to strengthen a common foreign policy and army - this process has in fact already started. So while it seems that the US become more and more divided, Europe is uniting and getting stronger politically.
