You Gotta Hand it to Michelle
As part of the G20 summit in London, the great and the gracious have been doing a bit of networking. The big question about which people, well, some people are up in arms is: should Michelle Obama have touched the Queen? British and Commonwealth protocol, which goes back to the days when monarchs were believed to have a magic touch that could heal, says no. However, those ole republicans who started anew in 1776 said that no American has to bow to any queen or king. Also, if the queen touched Michelle first, that may be considered as an invitation to respond. I am just happy that they are all becoming such good friends, and think it is just jealousy, since everyone wants a piece of those sleeveless biceps at the moment :-) .
