Search for “Google Images Hillary Putin,” and these are among the first five photos to come up. One can’t help but notice that, while Putin looks Hillary directly in the eye, she avoids his.
Why can’t she look him in the eye, or at least hold her gaze more than momentarily? Could it be:
a) She knows he’s the real thing and she isn’t;
b) She knows he knows that she’s nothing;
c) She’s planning to attack his country;
d) All of the above.
In contrast, real leaders look each other in the eye:
George W. Bush had famously said that he looked into Putin’s eyes and saw a soul there. Perhaps this is what Hillary fears. Seeing something she doesn’t recognize.
(*Disclaimer: One doesn’t have to be a fan of Vladimir Putin to admit that the man at least works in his nation’s interest, which is more than can be said of anyone in Washington. Speaking of which, Washington has been spoiling for war with post-communist Russia ever since it spoiled for war with Yugoslavia, a dry run. And all because it’s easier than dealing with the real enemy. The one that professes itself such on a daily basis and does attack and kill Americans. Unlike Russia. So far.)
