He may suck eggs back home, but overseas he's still at the center of a magic circle of power and influence:

President Obama has serious influence as a globetrotter: Since his trip to India, he’s been followed to New Delhi by France’s Nicolas Sarkozy and now Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao.

Mr. Wen, who arrived in India Wednesday afternoon, is even mimicking Mr. Obama’s entourage by bringing with him hundreds of business executives. It remains to be seen if he can best Obama’s souvenirs of business deals worth $10 billion and 50,000 jobs. But Wen will certainly go home with more than a T-shirt.

I wonder if Obama will become one of those leaders who are everywhere but the country that they head.
