A view inside the White House before the oath. From someone's cousin who knows the butler..........
I know so many photos have been posted, including my own. These may be new pictures, they came to me privately.
The butler is in picture number 8.

But don't miss the way the other butler looks at President Obama so lovingly.
What a story that tells !

3. You think this post might get the guy fired?
I would think that digression is required of White House staff and releasing private photos does not speak of digression. I would think that if he is named as the guy in photo 8 his job is toast.

7. Good thought, but I don't think so. The pictures to the most part look professional and official.

8. Good point - they certainly don't look like they came from a cell-phone-camera
I hope it wasn't a Butler. After all, what would come next, the First Lady stepping out of the shower?

14. I suppose, it comes with the job, that little is off limits unless it's in the
what I believe is called "Private Quarters". And I bet even there it may not be easy to lock all doors.
Every job has occupational hazards.

16. These aren't personal photos. I think they were taken by Callie Shell of Time
Edited on Sat Jan-24-09 11:33 AM by Pirate Smile
Magazine. She has been following Obama for a long time and gets special behind the scenes access. She has a book out of her Obama pics during the campaign. She was on CNN yesterday talking about these behind the scenes inaugural pics.

The other person who gets behind the scenes pics is the new White House photographer - Pete Souza.

17. Discretion vs. digression.
I did the same think this morning. Saying sloucher when I meant sluicer.

5. Our President is an unusually conscious person. You can see his awareness in every
aspect of his body language. President Obama truly is a man who is listening to

OUR

ancestors. The picture with the butler shows who he is.

:applause: P.S. THANK YOU Rahm Emanuel!! :applause:

12. I didn't notice. Thanks for pointing that out. That's darling!
I think he is essentially "made of iron", but it's living breathing iron, so he's going to inspire respect AND affection.

11. She doesn't show up well, but in the last pic Obama's doing the "bump" with a 14 year old girl.
She was interviewed in one of the articles about the balls I read, I believe in the Washington Post.

She said she wanted to see if the President had it "going on" or something, and found out that indeed he does.

Great stuff!

13. My crusty, cynical, old-Libertarian spouse was marvelling over this.
