I am wondering who a lot of the unnamed people are - relatives? cousins?

I'm starting to have hope and dream fatigue.

Hope and dream fatigue, sure, but I console myself with the sweet, sweet tears of the bitters.

Look, I love this guy, I adore this guy, this guy is second only to my husband and my father, but Obama on Flickr does not a FPP make.

I'm still trying to figure out how I can take advantage of the fact that I'm flickr friends with the President-elect.

Bu, makes for a great comment in an extant FPP.

Can I just say that it's awesome that this is on Flickr? Not released to print picture desks, not given to the newswires, but on Flickr. This President has surrounded himself with a team that gets it. He's the first President of our generation, and it feels great.

See ya, boomers.

See ya, boomers.

Not quite yet. Obama's one of us, after all.

Obama might be a demographic boomer, but culturally? He was only a kid during most of the stuff we associate with boomer teenagerhood, and he wasn't living in the country to boot.

Noo, the preccccccious is ours.
