Obama's European counterparts - Los Angeles Times

Obama's European counterparts - Los Angeles Times: "In Spain, commentators do not hesitate to compare Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero to Obama, for good or bad.

'Zapatero a modo Obama' ('Zapatero, Obama-style') was the headline of a recent story in the Spanish daily El Mundo, which told of musical stars filming a campaign spot for Zapatero, much as of the Black Eyed Peas did for Obama.

Possibly the first commentator to refer to Veltroni as "our Obama" was Italian television personality Lucia Annunziata, on her weekly talk show."
