I'm guessing you could really care less so the point is mute.

Apparently, yes it can.
And the President should have done what when he met Chavez? Punch him in the nose?

Assume you’re senior presidential advisor on foreign affairs – what would you have instructed the President to do?

That picture was just a still shot of a more elaborate greeting.

How to Shake Hands or Handshake Etiquette

By rachellevine, eHow Member

The handshake is a basic form of greeting in North America and is used to communicate agreeableness. It is used to say hello, good bye, congratulations, and thank you. It is also used to conclude agreements and is done at sporting events to indicate good sportsmanship. The gesture has an old history, and appears on Greek tombstones, often between the deceased and the surviving family members. Now, a good handshake conveys warmth and sincerity and in these tough economic times, it may be the difference between getting and not getting a job.

Instructions

Step1 Stand and approach the person with whom you are shaking hands. If you are seated, stand up. Keep a comfortable distance between both of you, so that you can both extend your arms with your elbows gently bent for the shake.

Step2 Make eye contact. Eye contact is very important. If you have difficulty making eye contact, focus your gaze on the point between the eyebrows and the protrusion of the nose. Looking someone in the eyes shows your shared humanity and builds an instant bond.

Step3 Reach out your right hand with your palm perpendicular to the floor, and your thumb turned towards the sky. Keep a slightly bent elbow as you do this. You may have to lean in slightly to do this.

Step4 Nestle your hand in the crook of the other person's hand. Do this by bringing your fingers across the palm and then wrapping the fingers around the bottom of the palm (so don't grab their fingers, and don't grab their wrist), and allow your thumb to wrap over the top of the hand. The other person will be doing the same motion simultaneously while shaking your hand. The fit should be snug, not bone-crunching.

Step5 Grasp the palm and lift your hand and lower it a few times (3-5) for the shake. Do not pump the other person's hand by squeezing and letting go of their palm several times. Do not vigorously shake or limply shake. A few solid up and down motions will do the trick. Remember to maintain eye contact and this is a very appropriate time to introduce yourself or repeat your name.

Step6 Let go of the other person's hand and allow your hand to drop to your side. Even if your hand is slimy or damp, do not wipe your hand on your pants or shirt. If you feel as though you must wipe your hand, simply place your hand inside your pants pocket and allow this motion to wipe your hand clean. Again, remember to retain eye contact.


Tips & Warnings

* Some people prefer to place the free left hand on the right shoulder or arm of the person whose hand they are shaking. This is unnecessary and creates a sense of intimacy that is best left between close associates.




* Some people add their free left hand to the handshake. This is also unnecessary and might be conceived as being over-eager.

Man, if I had made a mistake of that caliber, the beatings that would ensue. But since it is Dig we will quietly let it slip away. Perhaps he deserves that.
