Reblogging this again because I’ve been looking at it all day, and here’s what makes the picture: It’s not the fistbump at all. It’s Michelle Obama’s eyes and what is just about to turn into a smile on Barack Obama’s face. It says almost everything about them at this point. I don’t give a shit if the president and his wife love each other, and I certainly don’t think a candidate’s family life is in any way indicative of how he’ll be as an officeholder, but strictly from the point of a photograph capturing a moment, this is one of those rare images that gives such an incredible picture of its subjects.
