Obama will tour Europe, not Iraq, in his first overseas trip as his party's nominee. The Guardian reports,
This is typical thinking on the part of left-wing European tabloids, but what the Guardian (and apparently Obama) doesn't understand about U.S. politics is that Americans could care less whether our president knows how to hold the cup properly while sipping tea with the Queen. Instead of mixing it up with the landed gentry, Obama would learn more about being commander-in-chief from a trip to meet American and Iraqi military leaders. Or is he so afraid of what he might learn that traveling to Iraq is to become just another empty promise from the Democratic demagogue?
