Obamas going to Africa

From Ben Smith:

Along with expected stops in Russia and Italy, Obama will visit Africa again in July -- a month after his trip to Egypt.

It's a bit more international travel than some had expected, with the understanding that his domestic focus would leave Secretary of State Clinton the international profile.

Details from the White House:

The President and Mrs. Obama will visit Accra, Ghana, from July 10 to 11. While in Ghana, the President will discuss a range of bilateral and regional issues with Ghanaian President Mills. The President and Mrs. Obama look forward to strengthening the U.S. relationship with one of our most trusted partners in sub-Saharan Africa, and to highlighting the critical role that sound governance and civil society play in promoting lasting development.
