Today's New York Times (page A13) has a large section devoted to text and photos under the heading "Squaring Off With Body Language" - a detailed analysis and comparison of the gestures of our two presidential candidates.
Two gestures that really deserve major attention: Both termed "The Pointer."
Obama- "This may be Mr. Obama's most frequent gesture. He holds his hand in a fist with his thumb overlapping the first joint of the forefinger as if he were operating a remote control."
Romney - "This gesture is similar to Mr. Obama's.....except that Mr. Romney holds his thumb to the palm side of his forefinger......"
BE SURE TO OBSERVE THESE "TELLS" CAREFULLY AS YOU WATCH TONIGHT'S DEBATE!!
