    He did not ask her for her permission because her body language already gave him implicit permission. And then, the clumsy Romneyism came about because the dude is just not a natural with people like Clinton or even Bush. Maybe when he realized the dude he was staring at was her husband, he didn't want to come across like he was copping a feel of his wife or whatever he was going to come across doing. Part of is it is probably cultural as indicated by the writer of this diary, but I think it is just another awkward Romneyism.

    you can call me praveen.
