The President’s schedule has picked back up today tackling issues from the mortgage crisis to veterans' care, but was light on Wednesday -- and for good reason. Over the previous week, the rigorous pace of his tour of Europe fleshed out a new image and new role for America in the world. Over that week we published perhaps a dozen photos capturing that image, some more of which are peppered throughout this post. But now the White House Photo Office also gives us a slideshow that provides a more intimate glimpse behind the scenes at the President as he made this pivotal trip (best viewed full size).
Some pretty cool quotes and images from President Obama's trip abroad, including this TERRORIST FIST JAB WITH A U.S. SERVICEMAN!
