Poll: Obama's Popularity Lifts U.S. Global Image

Danforth noted that while Obama enjoyed popularity in France, compared to the previous administration, the French government agreed to take only one Guantanamo Bay prison detainee.

"The president is being heard and telling people what they want to hear, he's apologizing but when he asks, he doesn't get anything," he said.

Albright agreed that the president's popularity has yet to be translated to real world battles, such as maintaining support for the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan, which remains unpopular with foreign publics, but she said the United States was on a better "glide path" to restoring U.S. reputation and leadership in the world.

"Americans no longer have to say they're from Canada when they travel around," she joked.
