Breaking News

CBS News reports President Obama's trip to Asia will bring his total to 8 foreign trips and 20 countries since becoming president.

"The only other president to come close to Mr. Obama's first-year-in-office globe-trotting numbers is President George H. W. Bush, who took 7 foreign trips to 14 countries."

In addition, as Politico notes, Obama is stopping in Alaska on his way to Asia. It's the only state he hasn't been to since he declared his run for president.
