The Archbishop of Canterbury comments on the U.S. election

From the U.K. Times-Online and Ruth Glendhill’s Articles of Faith:

Regarding the US election, the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams said: ‘It’s been an amazing demonstration of the vitality of the democratic process. A record turnout. And the sense therefore that the issues in the election, the issues about the outgoing American administration, have actually stirred the moral imagination of the United States in ways that people didn’t expect. Given the sort of turnout that we have in British elections it would be quite nice to have an election one of these days that stirred our imagination to that extent.’
