The American President should not be bowing to foreign leaders. The bow indicates subservience and the President is not subservient to any world leader. I had hoped that Obama and his handlers would have learned this at least after Obama bowed to Saudi Arabian King, but here Obama bowing to the Emperor of Japan. Just wait for the White House or their allies in the media to argue no bow ' just two handed shake grasp', 'bending down to be at the Saudi King's level', or 'picking something up from the floor which no one else (not even the cameras) could see'. Expect them to try to dig up a video with Bush bending over to aid in the process of a medal being given to him.
