Perhaps the most remarkable moment from yesterday's inauguration.
Perhaps the most remarkable moment from today’s inauguration was an unscripted one. After delivering his speech, President Obama was leaving the dais and heading into the Capitol building when he stopped, turned around, and gazed out at the scene of people gathered on the Mall, a wistful smile on his face.
“I want to look out one more time,” the president said to someone standing near him, “because I’m not going to see this again.”
Hard to blame him for wanting to soak that in, don't you think?
Below is a gif of the President stealing a kiss from his wife as his two girls tease what other, You know like a perfectly normal family NOT having the head of their household sworn in as the most powerful man in the country.
I was thinking yesterday that this may be one of the most normal families to occupy the White House in decades. The Right Wing keeps trying to suggest that the President is "other" than us, but to me he, and his family, seem just as goofy, playful, and loving as the rest of us.
By the way I love that look that Michelle shoots at the girls after her smooch.
(H/T to Gawker)
Update: Here is the video that the gif was taken from.
