President Barack Obama, a self-styled "citizen of the world," who seems more comfortable in his overseas speeches than at the pragmatics of governing, may just be what his aides say: "unconcerned with re-election," according to Toby Harnden writing in the U.K.'s Telegraph.

"It seems highly unlikely that Obama will decide not to run in 2012. But he might well be calculating that a embarking post-presidential role as the leading global thinker in the post-American world as a Republican successor enters office is more attractive than being sullied by the political compromises and manoeuvrings necessary to win," argues Harnden.

Bottom line: Few Americans consider themselves bigger than the presidency but Obama might be one of them. The man in the Oval Office, maintains Harnden, may already be preparing for a role as a post-president in a post-American world.
