Obama/Harper smiles

haper-obama
(Canscene) — By now, we have all been subjected to a multitude of interpretations of the significance of President Obama’s visit to Canada.

Of one thing we my be certain and here’s where TV doesn’t lie: and that is the paleness of as our Prime Minister’s presence, smiling and waving feebly beside the beaming, waving President Obama..

Follow this up with the Harper visit to New York and we meet the same apparent reluctance to display warmth and geniality. Even Harper’s predecessors, Preston Manning and Stockwell Day managed bigger smiles.

While it seems we can never expect Stephen Harper’s personality to break into charisma, may we humbly suggest that in the absolute privacy of his sanctum, the PMO, he smuggles in a drama coach?
