Look Me In The Eyes.

A lot of what America watched last night was impacted by the visual images.  Body language counts. Why can't McCain look Obama in the eyes? Even when shaking hands he looks away.
I remember in 1992 when I met Bill Clinton (briefly after a speech), the lasting impression I had was that when he shook my hand, I felt like I was the only one in the room, the only one he cared about. It's one of the reasons Clinton is so charismatic. How one greets others is a big part of how people react to others.  If you can't even look the person you are greeting in the eyes it says a lot about you.
