Obama gaat winnen

Volg de weddenschappen; volgens Amerikaanse bookies is er vier keer zo veel geld in gezet op Obama dan op Romney. Ze hebben waarschijnlijk gelijk. Vier jaar geleden, stond iedereen met enthousiasme achter Obama. Volgende week zullen Amerikanen met minder hoop naar de stemhokken slenteren.

This extended period of heavy rainfall and storms affected millions of people all across the nation, but especially those in areas where the average population was already living in poverty and affected by the internal conflicts between the FARC and the paramilitary.
