Barack Takes on France and Germany With Michelle by His Side

President Obama said bonjour and guten tag to America's European allies today, convincing them to support more civilian aid and a small troop increase in Afghanistan. America's first couple made stops in Strasbourg, France and Baden-Baden, Germany.

French President Sarkozy said: "We totally endorse and support America's new strategy in Afghanistan." Sweet. German Chancellor Angela Merkel also showed support for Obama's plan.

Obama also took time to hold a town-hall meeting in Strasbourg. After reflecting on history he said: "At the crossroads where we stand today, this shared history gives us hope, but it must not give us rest. This generation cannot stand still."

Tonight, Obama will present his plan to NATO's 28 members at a dinner in Baden-Baden. Take a look at tons of photos from the latest leg of the Obamas' European tour!
