Forget Brussels?

Barack Obama certainly hit all the right notes today at a mass rally in Berlin -- emphasizing cooperation as opposed to the divisive policies of the current US administration. Among other things he cited the success of the European Union.

But I'm not the only one asking why his whirlwind world tour does not include a stop in Brussels, where the European Commission is located. You'd think he'd want to press the flesh with the people who make most of the decisions that matter on the continent.

Just an observation ... especially now the Eurozone is more powerful economically than the States. Healthy, not destructive, competition is important; but it's also important to know who your allies are and how to keep them.
