Hopefully He Wasn't Obama's Staff Photog...

While I was walking up to the Austin airport this morning to catch my flight to L.A., new Presidential candidate Barack Obama was arriving to town with his entourage behind him (for a speaking engagement at Auditorium Shores). Since he’s a man of the moment, as well as a terrific and hopeful national figure, how could I pass up the chance for a quick photo? I asked Obama, he was really cool and happy to pose, so I asked one of his crew to snap the pic. Too bad this guy didn’t take an actual Barack Obama photo for me. What did he do with the digital camera? He did this instead. It’s almost like we’re in a staring contest… Still a nice way to start the day, even if it was kinda awkward.
