Much has been made of President Obama's handshake-hugs. "The Early Show" counted nine embraces between the president and senior staffers at a meeting on Wednesday, and now the Chicago Tribune has given the handshake-hug-back-pat routine a name:
"I call that a 'shug,'" said Ross McCammon, an editor at Esquire magazine. "It's a shake and a hug together."
....Whether we'll get more hugs from our commander in chief remains to be seen. "People want Obama to look like a president and act like a president, even in small ways" McCammon said. "This hugging, I wouldn't be surprised if he backs off it after a while."
Do you think Obama's shugs should last? Chime in below.
