    I love these pics. I want more, more.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    ^It's too bad that when he looks like that, his expression comes very close
    to appearing smug. It's not that he IS smug in this moment, but I've already
    heard people saying he looks smug in this one.


    ^I think this pic really captures the loneliness and weight of the office of
    President.

    I love that he practised, and let people take pictures.

    I can imagine Bush didn't even look at the Order of Service (or whatever it's called) before his inaugeration.

    Ever heard of projection? To me,he is summoning all his strength or maybe praying. He has won the confidence of so many people,knows he faces so many trials. He may even be forcing tears away-it is bound to have been emotional to the extreme,this moment before stepping into destiny.

    Key word being "appearing" smug. And it's not just Repugs/Conservatives
    whom I've heard mentioning it. Even some of my Obama voting friends
    made these remarks. After they mentioned it, I could see how they might
    have come to that opinion, when I viewed the picture again.

    There are some more good ones her, though I'm not able to post them. I especially like the one of the Obama's in the elevator, with Mrs. Obama wearing her husband's tuxedo jacket to keep warm...
