Bro Shake

July 13, 2010

A note to a friend:

I don’t think I gave you an adequate answer as to why many (including myself) make such a big deal about these little snippets (the bro-shake with Chavez). It comes down to this.

When you don’t sufficiently trust a person says what he’s thinking, one is left to divine intent through actions, no matter how seemingly insignificant. Even, in retrospect I think the bro shake was more indicative of the future course of Obama’s foreign policy than were his policy pronouncements (at that time).

So, I stand by the technique.
