A Berlin Auf Wiedersehen to US President Barack Obama

German television gave strong converage yesterday to Barack Obama's visit in Berlin.

The first clip showed Obama walk in front of the Brandenburg Gate with coffee in hand.

The president, in an interview with Chancellor Angela Merkel, admitted that if he were living in Germany and entitled to vote he would vote for Frau Merkel. But he did say it with a smile. 

They both spoke in glowing terms of their eight-year friendship.

It was a lovely German goodbye to an American president.
