    With these dance moves the NATO leaders could be the Sharks in Broadway's revival of West Side Story.

    In a light-hearted moment, world leaders engaged in an international version of the hokey pokey. As usual, the British got it backwards.

    "Dancing with Heads of State" seems off to a rocky start. Who would have thought that Obama would have looked so awkward against the Europeans?

    They built it up with wood and clay, wood and clay washed away, they build it up with bricks and mortar, bricks and mortar will not stay, they build it up with iron and steel, iron and steel will bend and bow, they build it up with silver and gold, silver and gold will be stolen away, they sat a man to watch all night, the man has fallen asleep and they all fall down.

    Obama explains that to make a right-hand layup, you should plant your left foot, and then go up with your right.

    Country rulers really are kids at heart–even like pre-teens at a slumber party. They like to jump up and take pictures of themselves in mid-air.

    After a week of glum world news, world leaders dance out their problems. Apparently no world leader can reenact the Blitzer Boogie.
