Dear Amit.My reasons for my statements are scientific,not subjective.Study "body language".It is taken v.seriously by many "agencies" to give them insights into behaviour and thoughts of leaders.Each individual has a "personal space".Generally,the length of an elbow is the measure of an individual's personal space-cocktail parties,with a drink in one's hand.Intrusion into this personal space can be friendly or unfriendly.It is why "lovers" are seen very close together,hold hands,kiss,etc.If you get close up with a girl,and she does not move away giving herself more room,in general,she finds you attractive,but you have to also watch for other positive signs like the position of legs,etc.
Now in the video clip where Obama and MMS were standing next to each other,Obama reached out and put his hand on MMS's back.This was a demonstration that Obama could take liberties with MMS,reaching out into his "personal space",very similar to how a teacher pats a student on the back for doing something correctly.This is also a sign of feeling "superior" to the person to whom you are patting on the back.Between close friends,the gesture is generally reciprocated,with each hugging the other,or putting arms round each other,signs of "equality" or cameradrie.In MMS's case,he did not put his hand on Obama's back,signifying a lack of confidence in doing so or a lack of "togetherness" with him.Contrast this with MMS's behaviour with George Bush and you will see a marked difference!
There are several other methods of catching a person who is lying,etc. from "body language".Psychographology is another most intersting science as well as phrenology.While not revealing the tricks of my trade,I will tell you one fact though,that MMS is a very "lucky" man from certain signs.Who was it who said,"I would rather have a lucky general than a smart general.... They win battles, and they make me lucky." Eisenhower! Napoleon also was reported to have made similar statements.
PS:So is Obama,to an extent.
