    Look at that sweet happy baby. I think he senses he has a friend in President Obama, and he does.

    The lil’ guy looks mighty happy to be in the presence of President Obama!! It’s a baby’s intuition, which is correct. What a cutie!

    Souza’s photo of that happy baby is a gem, a treasure. Look, there’s got to be something that President Obama gives off in front of babies and kids and even grownups, a force field of love, concern, empathy. It’s almost unfair, the advantage it gives him. I’ve reached out to strange babies myself, and do they look at me and think, “A Grandma! Pick me up!”? I’m sad to say, not very often, and then only when I’m wearing interesting earrings!

    Some day, some genius is going to figure out how to photograph telepathy in little balloons and show a Republican and Democrat meeting in a White House conference room and everyone is looking at a smiling Barack Obama and in the balloons above their heads will be a generalized representation of a submissive “Woof, woof,” perhaps accompanied by one or two tails wagging. Otherwise, how can he maneuver them out of pure recalcitrance the way he does?

    One of life’s mysteries — but we know, don’t we?
