Amy says the election is being followed very closely in France, but it's now quite as "electric" as it was four years ago.

From Spain, Gerry says the overall interest is "more muted than it was four years ago."

Some of that has do to with the economic crisis in Europe, but there's also disappointment in Obama for not keeping promises made during the last election.
