Curious about how a few folks in Greenland or Burkina Faso would vote in the U.S. presidential election?

I thought so.

A Web site called theworldfor lets people with Internet access all over the world express their preference between Sen. Barack Obama or Sen. John McCain.

It probably should not come as a surprise that “the world” is favoring Obama. Europe is a sea of blue. North and South America, too.

But a few countries are favoring McCain, including Iran, Senegal, Honduras and one dude in the aforementioned Burkina Faso.

Check it out. If you hang out on the site for a few minutes, you might even see a pop-up when someone new weighs in.
