5. Great photos!
But check the caption for #24. That's Bo, not Michelle, and he and Barack are not waiting for anyone. Haha.

9. This is among my all time favorites!


I imagine that iconic one of Bush and that squawling baby had been cherry picked. But has ANYONE here ever seen a "good" picture of him and a baby? Now O'Bama on the other hand......

11. I like #28
the look on his face, I wonder what's in the NYT that day. Maybe a prediction that his stimulus plan is doomed?

14. This caption ticks me off:
Edited on Sun Apr-26-09 06:55 PM by tblue37
"OMG: Michelle and Carla discuss the moment when Michelle put her arm around the Queen, a breach of royal protocol."
If freaking Buckinham Palace says it was not a breach of protocol, then why are American reporters so determined to call it a breach of protocol? Besides, Queenie hugged Michelle first.

16. Yeah, I thought it was an odd caption too....
...apart from its inaccuracy it strikes me that that was a private conversation between Michelle and Carla - should a photographer given 'behind-the-scenes' access be using what they hear for a caption? :shrug:

15. #16 The girls with Grandma & the Butler: it puts me in mind of a book about DC's black community...
... that a friend gave to me on a visit there 10 years ago. Whenever I see how much out-and-about Michelle Obama is in Washington, I wonder if she has read "The Guide to Black Washington: Places and events of historical and cultural significance in the nation's capital" by Sandra Fitzpatrick and Maria R. Goodwin.

My old friend that I stayed with worked with Maria, and Maria gave me a copy. It makes for fascinating reading, as it is full of historical information about how the nation's capital is and always has been essentially a black city. It's not that the Obamas wouldn't know that, but Barack is from Hawai'i and Chicago and Michelle is from Chicago. This book goes way below the surface. I hope someone gave them a copy...

28. They're all great! Since no one has mentioned the one with
Hillary, I will say I love seeing them looking so happy together. She's doing a great job and I think was an inspired choice.
Thanks, Jackeen!
