Europe in Love with Obama

Let me be the first to say that the Europeans are right on the money with being smitten with Barack Obama. With the charm of JFK and the oratory skill of a master politician he literally kicked butt and took names in Berlin.

After watching the speech myself there was only one conclusion to come to and over at Spiegel they said it better than I could ever do…

No. 44 Has Spoken
By Gerhard Spörl

Anyone who saw Barack Obama at Berlin's Siegessäule on Thursday could recognize that this man will become the 44th president of the United States. He is more than ambitious -- he wants to lay claim to become the president of the world.

It was a ton to absorb -- and what a stupendous ride through world history: the story of his own family, the Berlin Airlift, terrorists, poorly secured nuclear material, the polar caps, World War II, America's errors, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, freedom. It's amazing one could even pack such a potpourri of issues into sentences and then succeed in squeezing them all into the space of a speech that lasted less than 30 minutes.


Europe is witnessing the 44th president of the United States during this trip. Anyone who listens to him quickly realizes that he is not only ambitious but will also make demands. In the inner circles of Angela Merkel's Chancellery, he is reportedly seen as a pleasant person, one who arouses curiosity. - Spiegel

You really need to check out the full article on the Obama appearance to get the full impact of it. This speech alone boosted the odds in Vegas of any chance of McCain winning the election in November.


*****UPDATE: The Obama campaign emailed me the video link for YouTube in it's entirety and you can view it here or below.
