After leaving Brussels, President Obama flew to Rome, where he met with Pope Francis for nearly an hour. Politico writes that Obama was seeking a "halo effect:"
"President Barack Obama was once the biggest superstar on the international stage. On Thursday, he headed here to benefit from the popularity of his replacement: Pope Francis. The 50-minute meeting was a rare chance for Obama to associate himself with a world leader whose cool factor far outweighs his own "
Politico is right about that. A new poll from the Associated Press finds that Obama's disapproval rating has just hit a record high of 59%.
