Barack Obama added to his victory total by overwhelming Hillary Clinton in voting held by Democrats Abroad. Over 20,000 Americans living in 164 nations cast their ballots either in person or via the Internet as part of an effort to involve each and every American citizen in a new effort to transform US elections into a global outreach. They voted in a pub in Ireland or in hotels or at a Starbucks coffee shop in Bangkok. The world wide contest results were:
Obama — 65.6%
The remaining votes were cast for a variety of candidates like John Edwards. This vote may well constitute an important new trend which now allows any American citizen anywhere in the world to vote for delegates to the convention as part of a separate entity known as Democrats Abroad. Obama wowed them in Bangkok and Clinton fell flat in Moscow.
