The headline on the website of German magazine Der Spiegel about Barack Obama’s speech in Berlin: “Huge Crowds Left with Mixed Feelings.” Two hundred thousand turned out for the speech, but CNN’s Candy Crowley reported an “absence of euphoria” at the event. As Senator Obama went global with “Yes, we can” and “Change we can believe in” he left at least some of the horde in Berlin scratching their heads. Perhaps these Germans, out to hear what all the excitement was about, were looking for leadership and substance rather than kumbaya.
