Canada slighted again

Barack Obama with Gordon Brown today --

So I am pleased that my first meeting overseas as President is with Gordon Brown, just as I was pleased to host him in Washington shortly after taking office and I know that we both believe that the relationship between our two countries is more than just an alliance of interests.

The photo is Obama in Ottawa to meet Stephen Harper on 19 February. Some combination of the eagerness to massage Brown's ego and a definition of Canada as not being "overseas". Lake Ontario begs to differ.
