Kudos to the first person that can tell me...

The world wants to like America. The guiding values that Thomas Jefferson articulated so eloquently - life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness - resonate strongly around the world, transcending countless superficial and cultural differences, not because these are American values, but because they are universal values, imbedded within the human heart. This is the reason that individual Americans are often treated with warmth and respect, even in countries whose governments are not considered friendly to the United States...

...The United States has a greater destiny than to be perceived as the schoolyard bully of the 21st century. We have a higher spiritual calling than self-centered unilateralism. Throughout its history, America has been a beacon of hope for so many around the world. Its role as keeper and bringer of hope has left no doubt about what is right with America. This heritage is why the world wants to like us; and this is the true, good role to which we should always aspire, even when the path is steep and the misunderstanding that divides us from other cultures is profound.

Who cares? It's a bunch of empty pap meant to sound vaguely pro-American, but belied by a sense of deep self-loathing about it. So, probably, Obama. But if not, indeed, who cares?
