Obama Trip Could Push Rock-Star Persona to New Heights
By Fox News | Friday, July 18, 2008
Barack Obama’s advisers insist his coming trip abroad is not a campaign swing. Even so, the high-profile journey has all the trappings of a rock-star tour.
The Illinois senator’s trip to Europe and the Middle East has generated so much interest that all three TV network news anchors are planning to accompany the candidate.
Foreign media have reported daily on the impending visit. And the campaign revealed Friday that Obama intends to meet with top U.S. allies.
Obama is surely looking to burnish his foreign policy credentials overseas — but on the back end of it, his superstar persona might get the biggest boost.
