I Shall Not Kiss Babies

In the unlikely event that I run for some sort of government office, I hereby do solemnly swear that I will not kiss any babies.

I really don’t understand the motivation behind it. It would be creepy and weird if some bloke came and kissed my kids on the head, why would you do it to a stranger’s kids?

(I’m not a kiss-to-greet person in general anyway – polite handshakes and nods all the way for me.)
