Palin's "Foreign Policy Tutorials" - But Obama Didn't Need Any?

Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin hit New York City yesterday to meet with world leaders in town for the United Nations General Assembly, and Kate Zernike was there ("Palin Has Meetings for a Second Day With Foreign Leaders").

Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska completed Day 2 of her foreign policy tutorials on Wednesday, meeting with the leaders of Georgia, Ukraine, Iraq, Pakistan and India and engaging in small talk about her looks and New York City.

Kathryn Jean Lopez made a good point at National Review Online:

By contrast, when Obama - he, too, of little foreign-policy experience (and no executive experience) - went to the Mideast and Europe, it was described by the same paper as "high-stakes" and meant to "bolster" his creds, he was not being tutored by foreign leaders.
