Your Turn: BP at the White House

Pete Souza/White House

I’m interested in how you deconstruct this single photo (players, location, body language, etc.) that the White House released of Obama’s meeting/showdown with honcho, Tony Hayward, and other BP executives. (Click for full size.)

I’ll be joining in the discussion thread, then posting a summary here in a day or so as an update.

(caption: President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden meet with BP executives in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, June 16, 2010, to discuss the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Pictured, from left, are BP CEO Tony Hayward, BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg, BP General Counsel Rupert Bondy, BP Managing Director Robert Dudley, Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, Attorney General Eric Holder, and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.)
