WHEN Barack Obama comes to visit us, we can look forward to broad grins and quotations from Yeats in the style of Kennedy and Clinton -- always assuming that the US president's speech-writers can find something optimistic in the work of Yeats.
At a pinch, there's always "the indomitable Irishry", not that we've been feeling too indomitable lately. And the president is a quintessentially American optimist.
He must also be the "coolest" person ever to hold the office.
