In touching tribute to Mandela, Obama posts photo of himself watching TV Read M
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa in one of modern history's more remarkable national -- and personal -- transformations. Mandela's family suggested that wasn't going to happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela's former prison cell. The Obama White House hastened to post one of those on Twitter Thursday as soon as word arrived of the icon's passing at 95. Obama immediately scheduled a photo op of his own in time for the evening news. But before that he was captured in an action photograph staring at television coverage of the passing of the vaunted victor over apartheid.

Another great blog that I stumbled on. I love Brittany Pounder's piece about her family's Christmas Challenge. Please check it out to read some terrific commentary from a Constitutional Conservative perspective.
