“Obama’s campaign told The Associated Press the likely nominee will travel to Jordan, Israel, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. The Illinois senator also has said he intends to visit Iraq and Afghanistan this summer; his campaign would not say whether those stops would be part of the trip to the Mideast and Europe.”

“It is unusual for a presidential candidate to travel internationally so close to Election Day, especially in a closely fought campaign. Obama had considered such a trip last year, but the competitive primary with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton made it too risky to spend time away from early primary states.

Obama foreign policy adviser Denis McDonough said the senator wants to consult with leaders of some important U.S. allies about common challenges, including terrorism, nuclear proliferation, climate change, Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran.

“He obviously wants to consult with the leaders of those countries but also find an opportunity to speak to the people of those countries about our shared values and goals,” McDonough said in an interview Saturday.”

So…. who is hoping will elect him?  The people of the United States of America or the WORLD GOVERNMENT he so sorely wants to be part of… or maybe leader of… or maybe self proclaimed King of?  Seriously.  Or maybe just maybe this is another “fundraising” trip for the $650 million dollar man!

Oh oh oh and I LOVE this part “The trip also will help address Republican rival John McCain’s criticism that the first-term Illinois senator lacks the international experience to be commander in chief. In particular, McCain and the Republican Party have sought to make the case that Obama has not observed conditions in Iraq closely enough to determine whether his plan to remove all combat troops within 16 months is the right course of action.”

WOW!  Do you guys realize that ANY of us could be experts as long as we are on a plane that touches the tarmac in any foreign country!  WOW!  Oh the countries I am further qualified to pontificate on… or maybe even advise on… shoot howdy, I’m gonna go dig out my passports current and old I could be a foreign advisor for US to places like Japan, Italy, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Korea, Germany – I know I am forgetting some in my excitement… DANG… just LOOK at all the INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE I HAVE!  Heck, I even have HOURS if not DAYS or WEEKS more than Barak.

“The people of the United States of America or the WORLD GOVERNMENT he so sorely wants to be part of…”

If that’s the case Obambi is a bit silly, he already has the world’s vote, it’s America’s vote that he needs to work a bit more for. Unless off course he’s just assumed that he’s entitled to their vote or something.

One the issue of visiting foreign states = foreign policy experience, then step aside Obambi, i’ve lived in the third world.
