Today Obama has been touring around the UK, trying to ensure and develop the special relationship between the two countries.
It got me thinking though; when Obama meets the Queen what will he really be thinking behind all those pleasant smiles and lame little bows?
Here is a son of a man from Kenya (a former British colony) who now stands as his country's first African American President - a position absolutely at odds with the hereditary and unelected nature of the woman he has to shake hands with.
Her family stood idly by while his was oppressed (see his distant Irish roots for further emphasis) yet now he has infinitely more influence than the Queen's reserve powers.
So what will he be thinking?
You're time is over old lady?
This is what progress looks like?
Sucked in, you're looking at the real King?
What do you think? Will Obama's background enter his mind when he's meeting his antithesis? Tell us and remember...Disqus!
