Hatoyama looks so flustered and happy!

And there was me expecting a race queen when I read 'Grand Prix'. I'm a bad boy. Mr. H is perhaps hoping no-one'll make him stand up for a wee minute.

The idiot should be more concerned with his job than posing with a couple of girls.

Getting their opinions on matters of state, and why not, can't be any worse than his cabinet.

Looks like Hatoyama would like to enter Venus for sure.

He has always a great fashion style, so wonderful and haute. Very stylish gorgeous tie and great color too. A+ I am sorry but the miss are not ok.

he behaves like a normal straight guy. A man, if surrounded by girls who flatter him, behaves like this. That is why I am disgusted with men. They lose their tmind when women flatter them, and even more when women ignore them. In both cases they turn brainless. I am yet to see a man who will not run after a woman like a being without a brain.

Even a skeleton looks better I think.

Love USA...LOL. Give the guy a break. He's the PM. When he draws Tokyo Dome-size crowds of women in the same way as the androgynous Korean actors, your point may become a valid one. Until then, you sound like someone who's not getting enough.

Has he ever worn a red or dark tie????

The two ladies seem to be laughing at him rather than with him.

This is what we men do. It's who we are. Hatoyama is no different!

I respect Hatoyama as a person after seeing this picture. Glad to know he is really human.

This could possibly be one of the most ingratiating photos I have ever seen of him. Usually running after women doesn't require ones logic or reasoning, basically, that is the point. His enjoyment is not running away in this photo, he is however on the edge of his seat.

some men are different, they take "no" for an answer and bear it with dignity. others continue to stalk the object of their infatuation and make fools of themselves. Power makes men infatuated with themselves. In the case on the photo maybe it is one chance of Hatayama to meet kawaii women. But if he is charismatic in real life, he will have such a chance every day, without the need to have power, authority to attract women.

continue to stalk the object of their infatuation

In some cases this is the epitome of true love while in others perpetual immaturity. Please be careful with your generalizations and answer a question for me if you please, in the above photograph would you say he has a preference for one of the women more than the other? If so, which one?

maybe he likes Miss Kimono or a third person not in the photo.

I wouldn't call this photo ingratiating or assume he has just turned into a brainless idiot just because of the moment captured in this photo. Looks more to me like someone had just said something funny and all three of them are having a bit of a laugh. Chill out, people!

His body language is saying that he feels nervous, insecure and not very confident.

Alright peachy I will be embarrassingly honest with you, all due respect to Mr. Hatoyama. His face is quite bizarre for me personally. Individual facial features have personal and individual impact on people differently. As an un-biased observer I notice a strange reaction to his face in myself personally and have done so for quite some time. In this photo however, I notice a different reaction within myself. So, I was not implying a disingenuous motivation on their part, I was reflecting honest information from myself by saying the photo ingratiates itself to me.

I would agree with Loveusa about which female if in fact Miss Kimono is wearing purple.

Cider has been known to help one through a day or two whilst I preferred the stout.

Kavikahi, when a man starts to talk about "epitome of true love" he surely has spent his day loving the chuhai. The flowers on the left of Hatoyama are not true ikebana. I am tempted to rearrange the ikebana.
