The "Military-Friendly" Senator Clinton And A Photo Opportunity Gone Wrong

Well, maybe she wants to be military-friendly, but there's evidence that members of the military do not wish to be friendly to her. Consider the photo at left, for example. Notice the soldier's left hand. Yep, he's showing what I understand is called the "sign of coercion" with his left hand, meaning he's not willingly shaking the good Senator's hand.

Not terribly significant, but fun to look at. We, ah, don't see this sort of thing with any prominent Republican who's visiting the troops in Iraq.

For verification of the photo's authenticity and of this soldier's intentions, look here.

UPDATE: Here's a relevant political cartoon.
