Among the 15,000 credentialed journalists in Boston this week are throngs of foreign reporters intent on covering what many people around the world consider the most important U.S. election in decades.

Al-Jazeera has a weekly program on the U.S. presidential campaign, while reporters from Brazil, Benin and Britain are following this election as if it were their own. International media seem to realize that this presidential race affects the future of the world, not just America.
