This is a very interesting read. I would encourage every person to read this article no matter your political affiliation or view of President Obama. It is always valuable to see another’s perspective and to gain a better appreciation by having a broader vision. President Obama in the article is seen by many Europeans as a man with great ideals bound by the position he held. It is ironic that he was in the only position to achieve those goals but at the same time the office held him back by being subject to popular opinion, congress, and his own power. The article goes on to explain what resonant most with Europeans and the way they view our President. They are not moved by our political parties or the campaign.
