Meet and Greet - Presidential style...

I've been hearing these stories about President Bush not really meeting and connecting with ordinary people in Vietnam. National Security Chief Stephen Hadley has responded to the critics by saying that the President has been waving to local Vietnamese from his presidential limo. This reminded me of how Bush had connected to the drowning people of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina from the window of Air Force One.

Don't these people understand the power of symbolism! What Bush is doing is much more than what the Kings would have done in bygone times.
