Obama is in Canada! For about six hours anyway, restoring a long-standing tradition of U.S. Presidents making Canada the destination for their first trip abroad. (A tradition that Bush ignored.) He was greeted at Ottawa's airport by Her Excellency Michäelle Jean, Governor General of Canada. The President will also meet with our Prime Minister, the unfortunate Stephen Harper, and Opposition Leader Michael Ignatieff. The U.S. President enjoys an 81% approval rating here in Canada. Yes he does!
