Is the world watching the United States 2008 presidential elections? Who are they routing for?

I've heard that, for example, people in Kenya are paying close attention to the elections simply because of Obama's ancestral heritage, but I'm wondering if other countries are interested in the US elections for something other than curiosity, candidate heritage, or just wanting to see George W. Bush out of office.
I'd like to know of some examples of non-Americans living outside the U.S. routing for one presidential candidate over the other.
