Here, we see Obama listening intently to General David Petraeus.
Here we see Obama waving to soldiers and them waving back. Seems like lots of mutual respect and appreciation for each other. Obama voted for the recent GI bill that passed the Senate, despite McCain skipping out on the vote. These soldiers know when they get home, they have a better chance at a better future with a college degree paid for by the GI bill. They look appreciative, don't they?
Here we see General Petraeus listening to Obama.
These are just pictures. They're snippets of time captured and may or may not mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. But they all seem to capture a certain grace and ease and ability that's been missing for years in the Commander in Chief. There may be good humor, but there's no silliness. Obama seems dignified and not a high-fiving frat boy like Bush has always seemed.
For me, these images collectively add up to a great picture of Commander in Chiefishness. Obama is filled with commander in chiefablility.
In a word, he's chieferiffic! See? I could never be Commander in Chief, because I'm silly. But, that works perfectly for parenting my kids and wifing my husband...
