Certainly not poker, as the Wall Street Journal notes:
President Bush condemned the actions of North Korean Leader Kim Jong II. But amid concerns that North Korea’s claim to have tested a nuclear weapon could lead to destabilization in Asia, the president said he is committed to a peaceful resolution.
His negotiating skills, however, could be a cause for concern.
“…That is the best strategy to solve the problem. I mean, I – you – one has a stronger hand when there’s more people playing your same cards.”
In poker, a player usually has a stronger hand if his opponents don’t play the same cards. If the president expects to gain the upper hand, he may want to consider using his poker face.
