The site has photos of Nixon bowing to Japanese Emperor Hirohito, and Eisenhower to Charles De Gaulle.
Also shows Bush Jr. kissing and holding hands with Saudi King Abdullah, plus Bush Jr. bowing to the pope.

So, I replied to it… and it went to a pending state… thus I tried again, but added the very end about Ms. Huffington:

Expect to see this next:

Kalima, thanks for posting the link to the speech. I rarely sit down and read presidential speeches from start to finish. It seems so often they’re written by a committee of advisers and just read by whoever happens to be president at the time. But not this one.This speech seemed to really have come from Obama’s mind and heart, and to have been based on his own experience and insights.

This guy is so smart! And he’s had such a broad exposure to the world–from early childhood on. He truly seems tailor-made for this moment in history. When I read speeches like this, it reminds me again of what a huge change for the better his election really was.

Thanks for posting this Kalima. It’s Hockey Night in Canada so I’ll have to listen to it later.
