Probably better to assume the reverse, actually. Being American is NOT beneficial in most parts of the world. I have encountered many times the advice that if you are backpacking overseas you should have a Canadian flag on your pack, NOT an American one. People seem to like Canadians. They don't like us. (And, in many cases, I can't say as I blame them.)

I haven't experienced that. Granted I haven't been to Pakistan or anything. The Greeks seemed to be genuinely puzzled about George Bush, but I never felt any animosity at all.

If I may paint with a broad brush, the Germans seem to be the rudest when it comes to Americans, but only outside Germany. And I'd say that's true general sense as well. In you are in the host country, people tend to be nice.
