US Elections 2012


Victory in hand, Obama owes debt to Clinton  WASHINGTON: After his stunning re-election victory, President Barack Obama's first phone call went to the one man who, by dint of passion and eloquence, did more than anyone else to pull him over the top -- Bill Clinton.   The charismatic former president wasn't on stage with Obama early Wednesday in Chicago, and wasn't even mentioned in the president's victory speech.   But Obama owed Clinton big for a bravura performance on the campaign trail, using his lip-biting charm and mastery of policy to persuade voters in some of the toughest US states that Obama's "got the better argument." Clinton, as popular now as when he was inaugurated in 1993, retains a hold over US voters and was especially valuable in reaching working-class whites in key states like Ohio and Pennsylvania that were a tough sell for Obama.   "If you vote your hopes and not your fears, if you vote for unity and not division, if ...
Puerto Ricans say yes to US statehood  SAN JUAN: Puerto Ricans voted for the first time in favor of their island becoming a US state in a non-binding referendum, election officials said Wednesday.   The Caribbean island is now a self-governing US territory.

Re-elected Obama faces countdown to fiscal cliff  WASHINGTON: Barack Obama's re-election as US president set the stage Wednesday for a fresh political battle over the year-end "fiscal cliff" budget crunch which threatens to force the economy back to recession.   US markets plunged more than two percent at the prospect that the White House and Republicans, who retained control of the House of Representatives, would be unable to compromise to avert the harsh austerity plan programmed to take effect on January 1.   Republicans left Obama ...
World leaders hail Obama victory, pledge cooperation  PARIS: World leaders on Wednesday hailed President Barack Obama's sweeping re-election, with allies pledging to deepen cooperation with the United States on fighting the world economic slump and maintaining security across the globe.   Congratulations poured in from across the world, including fellow UN Security Council members Britain, China, France and Russia as well as its staunch Middle East ally Israel and Obama's ancestral home in Kenya.   The Taliban, however, seized on Obama's win to lash out against ...
Afghan president congratulates Obama on victory KABUL: Afghan President Hamid Karzai Wednesday congratulated US President Barack Obama on his re-election, saying he hoped it would lead to an expansion of relations between the two countries.   "The president of Afghanistan hopes that with President Obama's re-election relations between Afghanistan and the United States, based on bilateral interests, are further expanded," his spokesman Aimal Faizi told AFP.   US ambassador James Cunningham told reporters at an election party at the Kabul embassy that Washington would continue ...
