Canada (Hearts) Obama?

Feb 19, 2009 3:43pm

As President Obama arrived in Canada this morning, newspapers were singing his praises, with his image splashed across their front pages.   “OBAMA ENVY” — the Ottawa Sun said in boldface font, in an article explaining how the majority of Canadians would pick President Obama over the current prime minister, or any of the opposition leaders. “DEAR MR. PRESIDENT: WE’RE CONFUSED AND WE NEED YOUR HELP,” the front page of The Globe and Mail read, accompanied by a picture of a woman carrying a life-size cutout of Obama through the streets of Ottawa. The Ottawa Sun — in an article on page 4 — questioned, “HOW LONG WILL THE LOVE AFFAIR LAST?” — mentioning local merchants hoping to capitalize on the U.S. president’s popularity by selling “Pizza Obama,” and “Obama Hawaiian Punch.” — Sunlen Miller Photo by Sunlen Miller
