This is the segment I did last night on Countdown with David Shuster standing in for Keith Olbermann.
I’m back in the U.S. and can report that enthusiasm for Barack Obama throughout Europe is off the charts.
Closing Guantanamo and holding someone, anyone, responsible for America’s use of torture against combat detainees, and putting forward a global climate change proposal may get a number of nations asking Obama if he can be their president too.
Let’s hope that Obama gets a lot of constructive work done before the reality of our stressed world hits and his bubble bursts.
