I already opined on how silly Haley's quotation about Obama's celebrity tour was.
Here's the quotation again, but in the Bangladeshi newspaper, The Daily Star.
Edward Haley, a specialist in politics and international relations at Claremont McKenna College in California holds different opinion. He said: "The tour of world capitals and hot spots represented a test that was necessary to pass. It looks as if he's done far better than just passing. He's aced this tour. If there was any doubt of his stature on the world stage, I think he's more than answered that. He hasn't put a foot wrong in any of these places."Turns out the data just doesn't support Professor Haley's statement. If the point of Obama's trip was to win, you know, votes, then it didn't move his polling numbers not a bit. I guess that counts as acing in Haley's class.
