Awww! Young Obama Love!

From The New Yorker:

(T)here are times when we are lying in bed and I look over and sort of have a start. Because I realize here is this other person who is separate and different and has different memories and backgrounds and thoughts and feelings. It’s that tension between familiarity and mystery that makes for something strong, because, even as you build a life of trust and comfort and mutual support, you retain some sense of surprise or wonder about the other person.

Must resist! Can’t write 500 paragraphs about how beautiful love is … won’t do it!

  1. Well, at least we know that there marriage is not fake. Good to see people happy to be with one another.

  2. “I think there was that strand in me of imagining what it would be like to have a stable, solid, secure family life.”_ Barack ObamaBeautiful! Just beautiful! This man truly loves his wife and it shows by his actions.

  3. I think the country is in a mood where we WANT to see a stable family, it’s comforting for us in unstable times to think a solid family represents us. Great secure-feeling distraction to stalk the beautiful ‘bamas! Thanks for the lovely photo!

  4. Its refreshing. I was watching Meet the Press Sunday and Dr. Cosby was actually affronted for the reference. But I say why not?Two successful people, who love and respect each and are raising their children. Loving it.

  5. Michelle O. has some longass legs and a FAB husband, I think I feel a twinge of jealousy. 😉 Jk… kinda.But seriously, I couldn’t possibly be more happy for them, and us (Americans) for having them in the white house (soon enough).

  6. I love this picture because of how their home is decorated; exclusively w/ reresentations of people of color.I know decorating in the White House is controled by some act and a committee but I would love to see more representations of POC in the White House. I’d start w/ battle flags of AfricanAmerican units thoughout our walls and find the one for the 442 Regimental combat team(Neisi).

  7. it’s hardly believable, right? not only is this one of the greatest political stories of all time, it’s one of the greatest love stories too! crazy. you can not make this stuff up.
