    Isn't it beacsue they "need" to shake Medvedev's hand first, their head of state? Then they may shake Obama's hand?

    If not ... bomb the place!

    It doesn't pass the snopes test.
    In that clip, Obama is introducing the people to the Russian president (they are the us contingent) and what looks line a snubbed handshake is just a gesture by the Obama.

    politicians are babies.
    Do not be quick to reveal judgment. Hidden judgment is often more potent. It can guide reaction whose effects are felt only when too late to divert them.
