This bit of information in the interview Obama's senior advisor gave to Spiegel is so revealing of Obama's candidacy.
SPIEGEL: Critics say the trip is nothing but a PR stunt to strengthen his foreign-policy credentials and that he has only rarely been to Europe before.Nobody! wow...We are all witnessing the making of the first American King. He will bow to no one not even to American people?!
Rice: Senator Obama has travelled to Europe, Africa, the Middle East and South Asia many times before. He lived in Asia. He bows to nobody in his understanding of this world.
