I've been able to catch the last 10 minutes of the townhallmeeting with President Obama in Strasbourg which has been broadcasted on different TV channels.
I think this has never happened before: a President of the United States is taking some time to answer questions from European students. The questions have not been pre-selected by some PR guy, Obama selected Students from the crowd which then had the possibility to ask him questions about everything. One question (the last one) was: "do you regret having candidated for presidency?", rather a personal question to which President Obama gave a long answer about how he felt during the campaign, not seeing his wife and doughters very often.
Overall Obama talked for 25min and took 35min to answer the questions from students. This was a brilliant step, I would like to see more such events from our heads of state as well.
