    I actually spent about two weeks at that same college in Los Angeles in the summer of 88. He looks really happy and relaxed. He looks open to the world. She is a great photographer. Obvious talent. These are the kind of photographs that are art and will be around forever. Its something to be very proud of, her for taking them and for Obama being such a good subject. You either have it or you dont. He has it. Very impressive.

    Pat> I don't think it's hypocritical at all. Why would they be happy w. a pick of someone who doesn't believe they should have equal rights?

    On Topic: Nice pics!

    I thought the gay community had wanted us to accept diverse opinions and lifestyles for years. Now they have a chance to prove they can do the same with Rick Warren. Their "outrage" is hypocritical.
