Wrong Conjunction

I wrote and lost a long post on this piece: "Saying No to Obama: The U.S. president is popular, but world leaders are finding it easy to defy his wishes"

So here's the very short version. If we accept that "popular" is the right word, then "but" is the wrong one. While I wouldn't go so far as to replace it with "therefore," it should at least be "and."
