Obama in Berlin, Paris.

WAC? thinks America is still uncomfortable about the idea of a young charismatic black man with an insider's golden resume being president. We are embarrassed about that inner conflict. Unfortunately, we haven't come that far. As with public figures from Jerry Lewis to Bill Clinton, Europe may like Obama more than we do. From The Paris Blog in a post by Matthew Rose, the UK's The Independent, and the New York Times.

The Berlin people liked Obama very much and the newspapers very filled with fotos and text about his speach in Berlin. A great day for Obama and for Berlin too. Ch.D. Schäfer
