Obama breaks protocol

It is being reported that Obama may meet Cameron during his trip to London.  As far as I am aware this breaks protocol.  It would be usual for an opposition leader to meet a President if this was a State visit, but Obama’s visit is solely to attend the G20.

It would be wrong to read too much into this but clearly the US administration expects a change of Government and Obama would wish to build a relationship with the likely next Prime Minister.

It will be interesting to see how Cameron plays this if the meeting with Obama happens.  Does he keep it low key or spin the meeting as being significant?
