    but the explanation of the circumstances really made this diary for me.

    When I first saw the Scott Van Duzer "Pizza Guy" hug I was shocked. I thought the man was being incredibly disrespectful to the President and the Presidency. How could he? But now I that photo means something completely different to me. Obama had just commented on the man's size and strength.

    This whole touching thing bothered me, even the when Michelle was lifted by Elena Pirozhkova at the Olympics, although clearly the First Lady had consented.

    And what a great way to express humanity even though Michelle Obama had been criticized when she touched the Queen. Her Majesty ER II let it be known that the touch was not a breach of protocol. That's what it is to have charisma.
