Politicians get coached on all kinds of things, from debating to necktie selection. Do we need to add hugging to the list?

Christie’s not the first pol to struggle with a snuggle.
President Obama’s embrace of outgoing press secretary Jay Carney last year was similarly weird.

And nobody hugs like Vice President “No Personal Space” Biden.
