Oh, and also

The idea that Barack Obama is somehow "far left" just goes to show you how incredibly far American politics has moved to the right. How far left is communism, then? Japan?

An Australian guy I met here tells me that they follow American politics mostly because it's more exciting than Australian politics, though he expressed confusion on how Obama could be labeled as a socialist.

The ruling party there right now is called Labor. The opposition party are the Liberals. Both would be left of the Democrats.
