This Picture…


…makes me feel better about the world.  The Obamas are flanked on the left by by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her husband Joachim Sauer, a chemist and professor, and on the right by French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife, Carla Bruni.

I have been privileged to travel Europe over the years, and meet people we keep in touch with years later.  To a man and woman, they all want a strong America, but not a Boss America.  They want a friend, an ally, but not a dictator.  They care about America far more than most Americans care about them.  They pay far more attention to world affairs than we do.  They have to. 

This picture tells me we’re headed in the right direction again.  Because it’s going to take a lot more than a village.

By the way, Carla Bruni really can sing.
