45. I had a similar experience when he was in town campaigning in 2008. The man has charisma!

I was bummed that he didn't get back here this year, but Michigan was never really a battleground state. This made me very happy and just a smidgen sad he didn't come back.

I hope you get to see him in person sometime in the next 4 years, because is it even more amazing when you see PRESIDENT Barack Obama, not just a candidate!

he's there to serve. Can anyone imagine Mitt and Queen Ann deigning to shake hands and chat with the masses?

I see everything but. It might be a lack of interest in WH tours and such, but it's strange.

21. The folks in this line ... both sides of the line... are the newly empowered...the new demographic.

Including a second term black male and his black wife illustrating what "servants of the people" really means. The other demographic...home watching football?

Now for another cultural paradigm shift ... Clinton/Castro 2016 !!!

37. Hopefully someone will do a cool graphic on "this group" as opposed to the headshots of the Senate

Group. The interesting irony is that the New Group will actually include the Old Group...by definition as human beings, not exclusively as the "other" or the "the outgoing".

because they'd be shaking hundreds of hands for hours when they did these!

35. I can't get it to play -- I keep getting a "just concluded" message. Any tips?

I press the Play arrow, no pic appears, and the bar at the bottom moves as though it's showing (but it's not) then the message.

I'm sure the WH is iPad friendly. Hmmmmm.
