In this Friday, Nov. 23, 2012 photo, a supporter for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) wears campaign paraphernalia on the side of a road in Accra, Ghana. After five coups and decades of stagnation, the West African nation of 25 million is now a pacesetter for the continent's efforts to become democratic. It's having another presidential election on Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, with televised debates between the candidates, campaign messages on Twitter and Facebook, biometric voter IDs, plus a culture that has taken to peaceful politics with gusto.
