Obama makes it all about business on first day in India

The Obama administration on Saturday announced $9.5 billion in private sector export deals with India that it said would support an estimated 54,000 jobs in the United States as President Barack Obama began a three-day visit here intended to deepen U.S.-India trade ties. Most of the deals had been in the works for months, but the White House used them to underscore Obama's trade message that India shouldn't be seen as a competitor.
