"Gazing at America, the French still see a wild frontier"

And here is yet another article about how yet another country looks at the U.S election - France. It's interesting that every country kind of adds their own perspective and culture to how they examine what is going on here, for instance this article at one point talks about France's laissez-faire spirit and how that affects the way they think about the candidates. Maybe we could argue this is a kind of glocalization of the U.S election, with the U.S election being a kind of commodity of its own? Can anyone else think of examples from around the world where we could apply this kind of argument? One to think about...
