Unlike with past regime changes, there was no awkwardness between President-elect Barack Obama and President George W. Bush when they met at the White House this afternoon. How do we know? Because there was nothing between them, except a thin layer of cashmere and worsted wool. Dudes could not keep their hands off each other. Obama started the touching, according to the Journal. “Taking a bit of prerogative, the president-elect put his left hand on Mr. Bush’s back as the two couples entered the Diplomatic Reception Room.” Sexy. Later, as you can see by flicking through our lovely slideshow, the president returned the favor by attempting to grope the president-elect’s behind. What can it all mean?
