Obama to Ghana!

Hurray! American president Obama is due to visit Ghana on the 10-11 of July, according to Ghanaian news.

When I heard, I was a bit surprised this visit comes so soon in the presidency, Bush Jr waited to his very last 6 months, for instance. But I guess it corresponds to the different foreign policy pushed by the new president. When I discussed the upcoming visit with some Ghanaian friends it was joy and laughter all around:
Yeah, that will really be a party/It will be bigger than Clinton's visit/I have never been to any event at Independence Square, but Chaley, for that one...

Great minds think alike! We've written about the same thing at almost the same time! But of course, from very different angles...

I LOVED when Clinton came. I am a bit worried about this visit because there is no charisma in this our president (God bless his soul). I remember that everyone agreed, even those who hate(d) Rawlings,that the two presidents were equally matched in charisma. We KNOW Obama far outshines our current one, lol. I wish i was there. I'd just have to settle for your account :)

Anon, I will cover Obama's visit just for you! And report back on Mills' charisma, or lack thereof, haha.
