Obama, The Man of the Summit
El Universal: If those in the Gethsemane audience could vote in the upcoming U.S. presidential election, President Barack Obama would surely get plenty of votes….
… thunderous applause greeted the president when he made his entrance to the auditorium … which hosted the opening ceremony of the Sixth Summit of the Americas.
Obama has shown in Cartagena what we already knew: that he is a very charismatic person…. elegant…
…. walking down the red carpet to the Convention Center … Barack Obama, the “man of the Summit”, wore a white shirt, trousers and brown shoes and black jacket. In the lapel of his jacket he wore a pin with the flag of his country and the gray in his hair shone in the Cartagena sun….
This style and his permanent real smile make him a very charismatic man and even … attractive.
Morning everyone ;-) I’ll be back later today – chat away.

As Vice President Biden walked from the White House to Blair House today for the second round of deficit negotiations, reporters asked him to respond to claims by Osama bin Laden’s sons that the killing of the Al Qaeda leader was “illegal”.
After a brief hesitation, Biden turned and responded with a smile:
