Experiencing the presidential election in the United States is a privilege for me. This is the first time that I have seen huge crowds of people, hungering for change through a democratic election, turn out to vote in a country famous for promoting democracy.
As an international student from one of the [world's] least developed countries, I am very optimistic that we could build a better Cambodia through elections as long as all voices are heard and all people could truly participate.
The US's 2008 presidential election is an historic one given it is the first time in American history that an African-American, Barack Obama, was given the chance to serve the country.
We, people around the world, wish to see a peaceful and prosperous world and the US plays an important role in that process.
