The Politics of Dodging a Presidential Hug

U2’s lead vocalist, Bono, was being interviewed on the BBC last night. He had a personal recollection going back to 2006 when he, ironically, said some words at Dubya’s Prayer Breakfast. I found what he said on You Tube and have it embedded below.

But that wasn’t the end of the recollection. Here is the rest of it.

So why dodge a hug? Simple. Getting a hug from one of the most hated men in history with all of those photographers present might just come back to haunt you some day.

Like this poor guy.
