caption contest, President Obama walking into a crowd

With President Barack Obama going on a 10-day trip to India, Indonesia, South Korea, and Japan, and with all the hoopla and controversy surrounding that, I figured it’s as good a time as ever to use this photo for a caption contest.   Here, Obama and his Secret Service personnel are walking into a large crowd.  Some guy in the crowd either wants to touch his face or slap him — not sure what that’s about or how that will end up.   So that’s one thing to discuss, but since a picture is worth a thousand words, there should be plenty to say.  And of course, you can always make up a story to go with it, whether based on current events or completely fictional.   So think of something funny to say about this picture and leave it in a comment for all to enjoy.

    And as President Obama gently pushed away the man’s hand, for only a split second he cradled his cheek and thought of home.
