That second chance, according to German commentators, would include the opportunity for Obama, without the fear of another re-election campaign, to take a stronger leadership role at home and abroad. …

Several of the commentaries in major German newspapers took a pessimistic view of the prospect of breaking the gridlock in Washington between the administration and the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. But they also wrote that Obama should now use his post to more actively engage in the world, strengthening ties with Germany and Europe, but especially in the Middle East. …

Obama already has ties to the Middle East.

Even Thomas Friedman on Charlie Rose Mon night said that Obama’s grandfather was a Muslim.
