You are getting a hidden peek, a peek into the world of what's really going on there. Well, you can read body language every moment you spend with others, you can make it valuable, and if you are on business you can make it profitable. Body language is crucial.

For those who study nonverbal communication, one of the first indicators they look out for, is the way someone's body moves.

At this Camp David Summit, President Bush is the host to visiting Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Vladimir Putin knows the world is watching him on American soil and  he also knows that his people are watching, he must show strenth.

Here though, both leaders are making a strong body language statement.

Now, here we are. two powerful world leaders in a sort of striding contest. Because of course, the faster you stide, the more strong, powerful and fit you are.

But it's not just the speed of walking that sends out messages.

Vladmir Putin and George Bush, both of whom are fantastically powerful men, have two completely diffeient kinds of power, and it evidences itself through body language.

I thank you all for coming.

Vladmir Putin has, what I would call, a very anymal power, a strong man power, and he walks by having his shoulders, they are actually bouncing back and forth. And he walks. He also makes gestures. He is very active. I would always call it a kind of sexy power. George Bush, on the other hand, has a more traditional, and I will say, American power. There is very little movement about the shoulders. He is trying to look like he is control, there is no extra wasted energy.

I thank you all for coming.

Perceiving the body language message message of these two powerful presidents is straightforward. But body languages are often complex and easily misunderstood.

Here, President Clinton leads Israeli and Palestinian leaders Ehud Barak and Yasser Arafat out before the press during peace negotiations. It's all smiles for the cameras. But behind the facade bonhomie, there is a power struggle going on. Clinton jokingly explains that none of them will take any questions.

We pledged to each other that we would answer no questions and offer no comments. So I have to set a good example.

The body language then revealed just why that was.
