You had to wonder which royalty that President Barack Obama would bow to after he dipped a deep one before Japan's Emperor Akihito. This after Obama bowed from the waist in a visit to the Saudi king.
Naturally, someone in the Washington Post said it was no big deal; just being respectful of the Japanese culture, although, as noted, one doesn't bow and shake at the same time.
Maybe a handshake alone would do for the next potentate the President of the United States meets.
I'd credit the creator of the graphic, if I knew who he is. Feel free to post a credit. Thanks.
