Has anyone noticed the world doesn't hate us anymore?

Ann Coulter makes a great point. Despite George W. Bush being a supposed "cowboy president" who has made the rest of the world despise us, it isn't looking that way lately. France just elected a very pro-American President. Germany did the same thing in 2005, Canada elected a conservative Prime Minister in 2006, and the pro-American Prime Minister of Australia was re-elected to an historic third term in 2004. And even Tony Blair, who was our ally when few else were, is about to be replaced by a pro-American conservative.
Ann also gets in a sectarian attack:
I'm off to Paris! I hereby revoke every churlish remark I've ever made about those lovely Gallic people. (But in light of former New Jersey governor and current "gay American" Jim McGreevey's latest career move, I redouble everything I've ever said about the Episcopalians.)
I'd be offended by that, if she weren't absolutely right.
