2/3 is not that bad. I think in Canada CARMS leaves something like a dozen spots each year for foreign trained doctors and those end up someplace like northern Saskatchewan.

Yes, the MDs in Canada and the US are equivalent, and they do use the same application service. It is similar for law degrees - I can go write the NY bar next summer, if I wish.

Re: outsourcing - that is relatively easy to get over. Law firms have started outsourcing some due diligence to India as well on a test basis (I don't think this is going to pass muster longterm, but anyway). All you really need is adequate supervision and the person who signs the report to be licensed - so what you do is ship over a few US-trained radiologists there on contract for a year or two to supervise the process. It's what other industries where licensing is required are doing (like say, accounting).

I'm going with Biden, but then again I live in Washington so he might not be around by the time it's my turn to caucus. If it's down to Obama vs. Hillary I will probably go for Obama. Hillary, although I think she would do a good job as President, is too typical of a politician. She speaks out of both sides of her mouth to try to please whoever she is talking to at the moment. I respect her but I don't entirely trust her. She's great at sounding like she's saying something but really saying nothing at all.
