Photos of the Day

There are so many ridiculously adorbz pictures of President and First Lady Obama from a joint appearance in Davenport, Iowa, last week that I hardly know what to do with myself! I hope, for them, that they are as deeply in love and as deeply in respect for one another as they appear to be. And I love, selfishly, all these amazing pictures of what seems to be as close to a straight egalitarian partnership as can be achieved in a culture that discourages straight egalitarian partnerships in virtually every conceivable way.
