Presumptuous nominee

Dana Milbank wrote in WaPo reported Barack Obama has long been his party's presumptive nominee. Now he's becoming its presumptuous nominee.
I bet Dana is no longer welcome on the Obam plane.
Fresh from his presidential-style world tour, during which foreign leaders and American generals lined up to show him affection,
and bow to him
Obama settled down to some presidential-style business in Washington yesterday. He ordered up a teleconference with the (current president's) Treasury secretary, granted an audience to the Pakistani prime minister and had his staff arrange for the chairman of the Federal Reserve to give him a briefing. Then, he went up to Capitol Hill to be adored by House Democrats in a presidential-style pep rally.

Along the way, he traveled in a bubble more insulating than the actual president's. Traffic was shut down for him as he zoomed about town in a long, presidential-style motorcade, while the public and most of the press were kept in the dark about his activities, which included a fundraiser at the Mayflower where donors paid $10,000 or more to have photos taken with him.
Did it include a blessing from the Obamamessiah?
