    The King and The President

    I just watched Obama and Clinton meeting the King of Thailand.
    The King was seated looking very relaxed and Obama looked very self conscious as he approached and towered over him.
    Hilary Clinton appeared to bow, or lean forward slightly(?) which made her appear smaller.

    What do Thais think of all this?
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    ..........Oh well, they obviously either don't read TD, or they don't really give a rats...

    I still don't get the silence as visiting heads of state are instantly forgiven for etiquette gaffes...The Incumbents are given no such licence.

    There was "The Lizard of Oz".



    Then there was the "No touching" incident



    How times have changed.

    Him: "This'll get me a few more votes back home".
    Her: "There goes the ballgame".



    Have you taken your Oxycotin today....??



    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    Around here they all loved seeing Obama with the King.
    And Obama wasn't required to do the knee-crawling thing.
    As far as Yingluck goes - he has more face than her, hence her deferential nod in the photo above.

    Contrast that with Obama's first meeting with Suu Kyi whereupon he admitted to being an admirer of hers. Wai ing back etc.
    Power it seems transcends all this.
