Not to skunkify the full-swinging garden party or anything, but Gates of Vienna is already picking up more than "globalization of joy" in the world's reaction to the results of yesterday's election. First, there is this Israeli newsvideo about a Jordanian report claiming Obama secretly promised Mahmouod Abbas that he would support Palestinian claims on East Jerusalem; and then there is this Financial Times report on Russia, which has announced it intends to place missiles near the Polish border.  

Back to global joy-- which extends even to the Marxist Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN)  party members caught by the AP last night (above) celebrating the Obama victory  in El Salvador.
