Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s visit in Washington didn’t quite make the frontpages in U.S. media, but the Washington Post at least noted that the Danish Prime Minister was the first foreign leader in two years to meet President Bush (II) in Camp David.
Just to quote the article:
[A]dministration officials said the rare visit was a telling symbol of the unusually warm relationship that has developed between the leader of the free world and the head of a Scandinavian country of little more than 5 million people.
It may not mean a lot to American voters even if Fogh Rasmussen’s visit can be used as proof that the U.S. is not isolated in international politics. (That’s “proof” as in “spin”, just in case you didn’t know).
The impact on the Danish electorate is bound to be divided: On the right, the visit will be seen as proof of the value of the centre-right government’s international commitments. On the left, the visit will be seen as another sign of Danish acquiescence to U.S. demands.
Oh, and by the way: According to the Post the last guy to stay at Camp David was Vladimir Putin.
