U.S. Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama has been trying to burnish his foreign policy credentials.

So it didn’t help when he called Canada’s leader a “president” during a debate Tuesday in Chicago.

Asked what he’d do about the North American trade deal, Obama said it needs changes, so he’d “immediately call the president of Mexico (and) the president of Canada.” ~The Edmonton Sun

But, remember, folks, he was an international studies major and has lived overseas–that’s what counts!
