    PRESIDENT GIFT TO THE QUEEN: AN IPOD...


    Barack Obama met the Queen at Buckingham Palace today and gave her a gift of an iPod loaded with video footage and photographs of her 2007 visit to the United States. In return, the Queen gave the President a silver framed photograph of herself - apparently a standard present for visiting dignitaries.

    Earlier, Mr Obama had spoken of his admiration for Her Majesty but indiacted that his wife was handling the details of their royal meeting. "There's one last thing that I should mention that I love about Great Britain, and that is the Queen," he said at the end of his joint press conference with Gordon Brown.

    "And so I'm very much looking forward to meeting her for the first time later this evening. And as you might imagine, Michelle has been really thinking that through -- because I think in the imagination of people throughout America, I think what the Queen stands for and her decency and her civility, what she represents, that's very important."

    Mr Brown added: "Well, I know the Queen is looking forward to welcoming you and she's very much looking forward to her discussion with you."

    There was widespread criticism in Britain and among Anglosphiles in the US of Mr Obama's recent present to Mr Brown of a box set of classic American movies on DVDs that were not compatible with British DVD players.

    Given his past idea's on gift giving, you'd better abandon hope for that...

    I love that her gift back is a picture of herself, it's like they had a cheap-gift contest and The Queen, being a veteran, clearly won that battle considering there's probably a room filled with the things.

    An Ipod...you give the Queen of England and Ipod....What imagination. Obama continues to embarass this country. I am ashamed. I am so glad I didn't vote for him.
