Seeing this family in the White House fills me with an extraordinary sense of pride. The man and his family remain a symbol of hope for anyone who ever thought they couldn't make it to the place everyone said they would never be -- and that includes us gay people. So sad to think that the lies and fear being cultivated by our fellow Americans about this man would so undermine his plans for a brighter future in the wake of 8 years of Bush. We are with you Mr. Obama!!!

It's not lies and fear, Michael. The man promised gay Americans certain things he hasn't come across on. I like Obama-and-family, but that doesn't mean I have to accept with glee Obama the politician.

And JT you may be right. Then answer this question.
Why are you guys still so damn bru-haha over The Clinton's who brought real pain to this community?

I'm not big on the Clintons, Chris, so that doesn't apply to me. But Clinton-fans might want to answer your question.

A lot of the preceding comments mirror my own impression:
The composition is totally off. In particular there is a painting coming out of one of the daughter's heads and Obama's hands are cut off from the bottom of the picture.
The beauty and dignity of the Obama family would clearly shine through any photograph. There just wasn't anything professional or special about this photograph.

It's a moment in time. Historic. A moment.....next.
