Eye on Obama…Hello POTUS-elect!


Gotta confess…regardless of personal political affiliation or leaning (or apathy), POTUS-elect Obama does have a very youthfully attractive Presidential style.

I voted on Tuesday, Lavie did not (very sick that day and didn’t early vote as planned), and Alvis will be voting in the next presidential election for the first time. Wow.  We already had a bit deeper political discussions between ourselves which is an interesting thing.

Here’s hoping that the next coming years will bring positive change and renewal inside our borders and reconciliation with our allies outside of them.

5 Signs President-Elect Obama Is a Geek – Wired Blog.  I wonder if he is an XBox360 guy or a Wii Dad….and does he prefer Vista or XP or a Mac?

BTW…I gotta be willing to stand behind any President who seems to have the same pair of eyeglasses as I wear.  I’m not 100% sure but I’m guessing those are Ray-Bans and the MIB style looks particularly close to the ones I wear.
