He must almethodsbe welcome on this country."Greens leader Bob Brown signalled he wouldn't be staging a repeat of his actions in 2003, when he famously heckled Mr Bush and drew international media attention."President Obama is sureto get a warm welcome Down Under," Senator Brown said.Ms Gillard forged a warm relationship with Mr Obama during her Washington trip they typicallywere pictured tossing an Australian football within the Oval Office and sparring over the merits of Vegemite during a calm school visit.Liberal frontbencher Eric Abetz conceded the visit would give Ms Gillard's poll numbers a bump."i feel it is almethodsan even-news story when the most vitalfigure this type ofs the president of the U.S. visits," Senator Abetz said.the U.S. ambassador to Australia, Jeffrey Bleich, said Mr Obama was unmore likely to bring his family.there was a fewspeculation that Mr Obama couldattfinishthe President's Cup golf tournament at Royal Melbourne between the U.S. and a globalteam.The White spacesaid Mr Obama glanceed forward to expanding bilateral cooperation on trade, expansionand jobs.Mr Obama said last year he had "gloriousmemories" of his childhood visits to Australia.Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd's doctors have given him the all-transparentto wait this week's annual AUSMIN summit in San Francisco after six weeks off following heart surgery.Mr Rudd will join Defence Minister Stephen Smith for the debates with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defence Leon Panetta.

world leaders meet with other world leaders all the time, it's called international relations. Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are in Australia at the moment I believe.
