N I C E !
Goodlooking guy, republicans please keep your hatefull comments to yourself.
6 days and counting!!!!!
I think most of the Country is MORE than anxious for the new Adminstration to begin! Our entire family is taking the whole day to celebrate and watch the festivities. It's been a very long eight years!
Big deal. Even Bush looked dignified in his official portrait.
So handsome! I ♥ Obama!
Can't wait for Inauguration Day! Bye bye Bush!
Keep an eye on him Michelle!
Now that's a hot looking President!!!!!!!
It is a nice picture, but is anyone else bothered by the ears?
VERY, VERY NICE!
better than that stupid grin bush had for 8 years.
finally, we have a preisdent that LOOKS like he should be the President. Not like the guy on the front of MAD magazine. GO OBAMA!!!!
"My President is Black...", said Young Jeezy.
this picture should be presented on everybody's fridge to remind us of what a great president we have.
HERE'S LOOKING AT YOU MR.PRESIDENT.
I am anticipating the official photos of the new first family, too. This is a very nice photo. May all our leaders act wisely for the good of the country so we can move out of the recession.
It does not look anything like the plate that is selling on TV and Bed Bath and Beyond.
Too bad they didn't pin his ears down!
Yes, "WATCHER" you are definitely right. Your first two words are right on the mark, "big deal". Oh yes, this is a very BIG DEAL – a very big deal for our nation. I applaud you.
I see intelligence and hope in his eyes. I think he's the real thing.
I'm surprised they went with a white background. It's looks a little boring, even for this handsome man.
Who cares if the new president is attractive?! The Gazans don't care, neither does Ahmadinejad or Kim Jong-Il. By the way, any of you notice how much Obama's grey hairs have multiplied since he received the official presidential briefing? Now he knows how much extremely scary stuff is actually on his plate. I wish him well, but all you starry-eyed dreamers will find out immanently how these mega-problems he's inheriting, across the board, are no cakewalk.
I am a Republican and I find Obama's picture to be dignified, strong, intelligent and presidential.
I like the Regimental tie? Any significance?
