Schoolgirl left wondering what all the fuss is about after meeting president amid crowd frenzy

One little girl was distinctly unimpressed with all the excitement when President Barack Obama came to town.

Many supporters in the crowd in Portland, Massachusetts queued up for hours for the chance to meet the president.

Some even camped out overnight in torrential rain to be first in line for a front row place.

But for this schoolgirl, at least, it all dragged on a little too long.

She was part of an adoring audience that greeted Mr Obama after his latest speech touting his health reforms yesterday.

The president has embarked on a series of appearances across the U.S. to rally support for his controversial health overhaul and other key domestic initiatives.
