Your Turn: Reading Matter

As the weekend’s Obama-Chavez show continues, I invite your thoughts on the dynamics in the very interesting body-language here. (Obama won’t be played?) Also curious how Clinton, and the “chain” of her necklace, visually factors in.)
I like this one also (reacting to the pitch), just preceding the one above, both part of this larger grouping. (I’d also be interested in seeing the photo on the cover of this edition of the Galeano book, if you see a link.)
