President Obama shaking hands with a black police man at No 10 Downing Street

President Obama shaking hands with a black policeman outside No 10 Downing Street. A moment that few of us ever expected to see, least of all I expect the the two people in the photograph! The look on the policeman’s face almost brought a tear to my face.

Thanks to Louise Baldock.

    It is a great shot. Obama is a clever one like that, he did the same with black musician on the Jay Leno show.

    Obama could teach many PRs a trick or two. It all comes so naturally to him; he always seems to knows the right thing to do. No doubt the policeman will become Obama's biggest fan. You said that the policeman's smile nearly brought a tear to your face. It won't be the last you will have see of it. I expect the picture to be copied and appear in a raft of PR campaigns in the near future.

    Well it's a shame that Obama missed that look… He's not even looking at the officer, he's shaking his hand as he'd open a door, you know what I mean? How could that be good?
