Diplomacy over Burger and Fries – Only in Awesome Washington D.C.

Those of you still have any doubt why DC is Awesome, here is another reason on top of my long list.

Where else in the world have you seen two proud presidents head to a burger joint to discuss diplomacy in public and act like grown ups?

Indeed, YES WE CAN smooth diplomatic relations over a hamburger and fries. President Obama took Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to the hustling and bustling Ray’s Hell Burger just outside of Washington to grab one of his favorite burgers in town.

According to the BBC, Mr Obama said the pair had “succeeded at resetting our relationship,” and that he wanted to “broaden” the links between the U.S. and Russia. That must have been one good discussion (and burger) they had yesterday.

Enjoy the clip 🙂
