I personally think it's a good thing Obama is respected in parts of the world.

Obama is weak sister plain and simple! We've lost Ukraine as an ally and now they are back under the thumb of KGB run Russia. Not to mention he has made a fool of himself and embarrassed this country by bending over--excuse me bowing-- to regal figures which is the most un-American act I can think of. I guess he got a lot of practice while he served as a paid man servant on the dirty down low while in college. That was his other job when he wasn't dealing coke.

It is clear that the poll didn't include Israel.

and, not on an inmflamatory basis, how did past presidents rate in similar polls? Anyone know?

Did you even read the article? Second paragraph from the top:

"Released today by France 24 and Radio France Internationale, the Harris Interactive Poll asked 6,135 adults between the ages of 16 and 64 who live in the United States, Britain, France, Italy, Germany or Spain to name their favorite world leaders."

It is good to see other countries actually respect our President again especially after living throughr 6 years of Bush 2 always being the most hated world leader.

I must confess I didn't read the article carefully but enough polls here show he is not quite that popular within the United States. Of course the question is their "favorite" world leader not whether they approve of Obama. So compared to the other world leaders he might still be their "favorite" world leader say as compared to Putin or Gordon Brown etc.

Do you really think he was the most hated. More hated than the leader of North Korea, Iran and all the other despotic dictatorships? If so do you really think such opinion should mean that much?

I'd venture to guess that among the six countries polled for this topic, Bush may well indeed have been the most 'hated' by the people at that time.

Bush would certainly be at the top of the list after the crazies like North Korea, Iran and so on. Personally, in this regard I find Obama to be very refreshing. I had gotten so sick of watching Bush embarrass us and alienate so many countries, many of whom were our allies.

North Korea's leader is the worst no doubt. Even China thinks he's crazy.

But W. did alienate an awful lot of people throughout the world. Cheney and him did tremendous damage to our reputation world wide.

True dat, although you have to remember that for many on the Left, serving as Scotty did is enough to call him those names.

And that is why the opinion of the people of these countries means absolutely nothing to me.

These countries reflect some of the most well-educated countries of the world. The poll likely netted a good percentage of educated people in the process. Obama is an educated person who behaves like one with respect to diplomatic issues. He has made strides with agreements with Russia despite a backslide in relations there in recent years. He has continued to be firm with N. Korea and Iran while working with the global community on these concerns. He has also pushed Israel to be accountable for it's role in peace efforts in disputed areas, while showing his support for their sovereignty. And he has also pressed Pakistan more firmly on the issues along the Afghan border. Respectful diplomacy that seeks to find solutions to worldly concerns does not equal "bending over" for other nations or getting "pushed around." The reputation of the USA is important for economic reasons as well as national security reasons. Just because Obama doesn't choose to alienate foreign leaders with cowboy antics and religiously righteous rhetoric, doesn't mean our military has suddenly gone soft or that our nation's resolve to stand behind what is right has lessened. Educated people around the "world" recognize this. I won't use the word "lunatic", but let's say the ignorant people of this nation likely helped the polls too, because the anti-Obama crowd would never pick a non-American world leader for anything!!

I find his lack of arrogance and respectful demeaner towards other world leaders very refreshing coming off of 8 years of numb nuts cowboy diplomacy by Cheney and Bush.
