Personally i wouldn't give a damn what the rest of the world thought about who i should choose as Scottish First Minister, and therefore I can't expect Americans to care either.
Has this happened in any other countries? e.g. when France went to the polls and promptly voted Le Pen into second place and into the run-off, certainly against the apparent wishes of the majority of the world? Did Austria listen to the protests from America and the rest when they went and elected Haider? Did the former Soviet countries give a damn what anyone else thought about their choices (often former Communist leaders)? The answer is no, because to the inhabitants of a country, nobody understands a country more than the people in it.
