Has anyone noticed that MSNBC uses that pic of Obama hugging that Black child in their promos?
Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 03:35 PM by jenmito
The one where the kid has his eyes closed and his head totally on Obama's shoulder? I wish I had that pic. I know some of you have it/know the one I'm talking about. His father is looking on...

ETA-His eyes aren't closed after seeing the pic again, but he sure looks thrilled to be hugging Obama.

5. Yes! Thanks! They don't show the father in their promo, though.
But what a great picture. :hi:

8. I agree...
He has such a calm demeanor. Kids love him. I think that's the sign of a good person.

12. Yup...what's the saying...
"Show me how you treat a child and I'll know what kind of person you are" or something?

6. I think the look on Obama's face is more profound
It is as if he's keenly aware of the importance of the job he's now doing.

13. I'm almost sure that's from the GE. I remember talking about the difference between
the way Obama treats/hold kids and McCain does (there was a video of someone giving McCain their child and he just held it at arms length then gave it back).

I have seen very few men that are as comfortable with babies and kids as he is...AND THEY LOVE HIM. I work in an elementary school and the majority of kids were for Obama (even if their Parents weren't).

7. Same here. Obama seemed to really care about him and vice versa. The pride
the father felt must've been unbelievable.

4. Beautiful Picture. Another one I like is where the family is on the couch
I've seen it used here as part of a sig line.

Just the nicest looking family. Makes me proud that he's our president.

they are and that picture is wonderful.
