There are some pictures worth 1,000 words. This one exceeds it by far.

Some other nominees:

U.S. President Barack Obama (L) shakes hands with a British police officer outside 10 Downing Street in London April 1, 2009. World leaders will have their work cut out at a G20 summit where Obama makes his first major international sortie, under perhaps more pressure than anyone to show that the country where the crisis began can lead the way out.
