The last time a sitting US President visited New Zealand was President Clinton in 1999 for APEC, when he was met by huge crowds.
It was one of the biggest regrets of my life, that I could of been there while he was giving a speech, but decided not to get tickets due to other things going on in my life.
Well never again. If President Obama does come to New Zealand I suggest every Kiwi goes, its not very often that you will get to see the President of the USA.
America bashing seems to be a sport with some people here, personally I don't think they get enough credit for all the good they have done in the world through the decades and all the achievements they have created for mankind.
In 2010 we will have a chance, so if your left wing or right wing, if your christain or Muslim, I suggest you head on down and see President Obama, it's something you will be able to tell your grandkids about.
