A picture is worth ...

I was stuck by this photo from the Drudge Report story about President Barack Obama's trip to Russia (photo on the left):

I realize that photographers capture only a split second in time with a single picture, but this photo looks as if our President is reaching our and warmly embracing his host...but not so much from the other side. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev seems to be acting in a more perfunctory manner, not even bothering to look at Obama.

Is this just a moment in time, or a reflection of what the Russian president thinks of Pres. Obama?

The picture of them on the right is equally as telling.

Pres Obama looks to be readying to tie his shoe and Medvedev appears to see that as his cue to split unnoticed.
