The Current Discussion: Rate Obama's first performance on the international stage on a scale of 1-10, and tell us why you think so.
OBAMA AT G 20: average, 7. Meeting was too formal for an informal guy like him. Better in bilateral encounters than in such a heterogeneous group.
PHOTO CALL: 8. He was next to Berlusconi, always a risk. He takes advantage of the Italian prime minister's old-comrade attitude, with a hand in his shoulder. Perfect smile.
SPEECH: 6 Mediocre. Too lyric. All European newspapers feature his photo in the front page. No mention of his words.
INFLUENCE: 6, which is low for the President of the United States. Brown looks like the master in command with the couple Sarkozy-Merkel playing tenor roles.
MICHELLE: 10. The real Queen of the London summit. Carla Bruni was absent but Michelle was there. She broke the protocol by touching Queen Elizabeth - the Summit's real historical moment
