The front page of today's issue of Libération, what was once the serious lefty newspaper in France, and now resolutely center left. The crowd pictured, though, is the one that gathered in Berlin. Sadly for us, Obama's visit to Paris will be all too brief, since he has a dinner date with Gordon Brown in London. There's speculation that the presumed Democratic nominee doesn't want to make too much of a scene here, risking the wrath of all those France hating, freedom fries eating voters back home. God bless America. We're just holding our breath until November.
