Obama Gets a Bear Hug: Gotta-See Video
While campaigning in Florida, President Barack Obama was hugged by a pizza shop owner named Scott Van Duzer. While giving the president a hug isn't news on its own, this hug was a bit more energetic than most. Scott, a tall, muscle-bound man, shook President Obama's hand multiple times before grabbing him around the waist and lifting him off the ground.
Van Duzer describes himself as a Republican, but he "doesn't vote along party lines," said ITN News. He voted for Obama in 2008 and will again in 2012.
