For Americans, who are voting today:

A view of what it's like somewhere else in the world.

The Opposition Leader here in the Bahamas, Hubert Ingraham, (FNM, Free National Movement, tends to be a little more conservative) is godfather to the autistic son of the Prime Minister, Perry Christie (PLP, Progressive Liberal Party, tends to be a little more liberal).

The also share a Law Partnership and office, Christie, Ingraham & Co.

The Opposition Leader used to be in the PLP at one time, but left to join the FNM, and was Prime Minister for two terms.

Just FYI, in case you need a chuckle today.

:D:D:D
