I'm posting this for two reasons: 1. To give a heads-up to anyone who might want to see the President start working what will be his 2012 general audience election material; 2. Because I love this picture, which reflects one of the things I have always liked and admired about President Obama: He is a statesperson with an infectious grin. And if anyone believes that to be a superficial attribute of a president, I would ask you to recall living for eight years with the sneering visage of a small-minded nincompoop as the face of our nation.
