Brit Hume Highlights 'Obamamania' in Germany
The New York Times, which owns the International Herald Tribune, posted the story, by Nicholas Kulish, on its “The Caucus” blog.
Hume's item in the “Grapevine” segment on the January 7 Special Report with Brit Hume on FNC:
"Obamamania" is spreading from Iowa to New Hampshire all the way to central Europe. The International Herald Tribune reports the Illinois senator has become huge in Germany, where he is being compared to the much-loved John F. Kennedy. The Berliner Morgenpost ran a headline this morning calling Obama, "The New Kennedy." The tabloid Bild said, "The Black American Has Become the New Kennedy." And an editorial in the Frankfurter Rundschau had a headline, "Lincoln, Kennedy, Obama," and said that quote, "hope and optimism are the source of the nation's strength."
