Foreign Leaders that Support Kerry - Members of NATO?
The Bush administration's hopes for a major NATO military presence in Iraq this year appear doomed, interviews with allied defense officials and diplomats show.

The Western military alliance had expected to announce at a June summit that it would accept a role in the country, perhaps by leading the international division now patrolling south-central Iraq. But amid continuing bloodshed and strong public opposition to the occupation in many nations, allies want to delay any major commitment until after the U.S. presidential election in November, officials say.[Nitpicker emphasis]
So, the leaders of NATO nations are waiting to decide until after the election - what possible effect could the outcome of our election have on their participation ...hmmmm.

I'd say minimal. The xenophobes and internationalists amongst the voters will offset each other.
