Stay Out: The Russian and Italian presidents have openly endorsed Bush. The Spanish and Venezuelan chief executives are openly supporting Kerry. All around the world, an unprecedented number of foreign leaders are offering their two cents worth in the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

With all do respect, foreign leaders should keep their mouths shut. It is diplomatically inappropriate for national leaders to try to meddle with any other country's election, even through a simple endorsement.

This election is going down to the wire. We truly don't know whether Bush or Kerry will be taking the oath of office in January. While I'm sure foreign leaders have strong opinions on the matter, they should maintain the public appearance that they are just as willing to work with one man as president as the other.
