Meet the presidents

I'd never heard of Patrick Moberg before this afternoon, but this illustration is pretty awesome. I mean, it sums things up perfectly, doesn't it? When I saw it on Andrew Sullivan's The Daily Dish, I knew I had to have one for my own. (If you'd like a copy, Moberg says on his blog that you can sign up to be notified when high-quality prints become available.)

And one other thing: I was watching President-elect Barack Obama's first news conference this afternoon and I found myself scanning the room to see how many other black people were there. I didn't see many, either among the media asking questions or the economic advisers standing behind him. Am I the only one who's fixated on this? It just reminded me how many other aspects of American life are, well, not very diverse.

Love that graphic! I used a few graphics to help me answer your tag from a while back. Hi Esther! Hi Obama!

Thanks for answering the tag, Dale. And great use of graphics, too!

Yeah, I thought the graphic was pretty amazing, and cool.
