Dana Milbank: President Obama Continues Hectic Victory Tour

President Obama Continues Hectic Victory Tour: "Barack Obama has long been his party's presumptive nominee. Now he's becoming its presumptuous nominee.

Fresh from his presidential-style world tour, during which foreign leaders and American generals lined up to show him affection, Obama settled down to some presidential-style business in Washington yesterday. He ordered up a teleconference with the (current president's) Treasury secretary, granted an audience to the Pakistani prime minister and had his staff arrange for the chairman of the Federal Reserve to give him a briefing. Then, he went up to Capitol Hill to be adored by House Democrats in a presidential-style pep rally."

Milbank thinks that the press may turn on Obama. I doubt it. But there may be those in the electorate who find his arrogance troubling, if not insufferable.
