Huh? What's wrong with wanting to meet Barack Obama? I'd love to as well...pretty much every German wants to. Before the election there have been polls here and 92% of all Germans would have voted for him, the highest in any country polled I think.
He's far, far more popular than any German politician and I don't see what's wrong with that. So Annika's answer is neither surprising nor wrong in any shape or form...I would have been shocked if she said she wants to meet Angela Merkel
