Raj! Raj! Raj! Obama!

The Times of India explains Barack Obama’s popularity in South Asia:

Such empathy and “connection” to immigrants from the subcontinent is only one part of Obama’s plural multi-ethnic background and wide-ranging eclectic education (American, African, even part-Asian) that makes him arguably the most unusual and exciting presidential candidate in US history — more universalist than American. [Emphasis added]

In other words, Obama would make a fine American president because he isn’t so awfully… American.
