Do Politicians Still Kiss Babies at Campaign Events?

This is a standard cliche, but I don’t recall seeing it happen.

Bump, 'cause inquiring minds want to know!

President Obama sure did it frequently during his two campaigns.

I haven’t followed this year’s festivities closely enough to know, but I’m sure as long as there were supporters offering up babies, there were politicians kissing them.

I should hope not – it’s a rather unsanitary habit.

Vladimir Putin has been known to get down on his knees and kiss a little boy’s belly.

Given they way they are scrubbing on the hand-sanitizer after every handshake, I would guess no.
