Is Sadiq Khan Britain's Next Obama?

Many in the media are calling this Britain's "Obama Moment" - the election of Pakistani-descended Sadiq Khan as London's mayor.

They are also saying that in a few election cycles, this Labourite mayor of Britain's capitol could be running for the top job of Prime Minister of the UK. As you may remember, US President Obama, once elected took great interest in the affairs of Kenya and East Africa, resulting in significant increase in US assistance to that continent. It's not clear yet what fruits Pakistan will reap from Sadiq Khan.

At a minimum, Sadiq Khan will be Britain's new Kejriwal, and a thorn in the side for Prime Minister David Cameron.
