The Best Photos of the Entire Presidential Campaign

Presidential campaigns are about policies, interest groups, slogans, personalities  and, to the chagrin of very serious people, images. But there were some amazing photos taken during the 2012 election — candidates campaigning in tough conditions from fried food fests to pouring rain, of funny faces, of candidate confrontations, and of devoted spouses.

As annoyed as you might have been this election cycle, you can’t deny there were some amazing moments.theatlantic:

What can be said without equivocation is that Obama has proven himself morally, intellectually, temperamentally, and strategically. In my lifetime, or my parents’, he is easily the best president. On his own terms, and not merely as a contrast to an unacceptable alternative, he overwhelmingly deserves reelection.

Mike, from Los Angeles, had a question for U.S. President Barack Obama. And as it was read aloud on Wednesday, by Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, it sounded like it could have come from any desperate corner in Canada: “Can you pull some strings to end the NHL lockout?”
Obama, whose arms had been crossed before the question, began to point a finger as he started to answer.
“You know, I do have a comment on this,” he said. “Every time these things happen, I just want to remind the owners and the players: You guys make money because you’ve got a whole bunch of fans out there who are working really hard.”

Can the President end the NHL lockout? Ehh who cares. View Larger

Obama, whose arms had been crossed before the question, began to point a finger as he started to answer.

“You know, I do have a comment on this,” he said. “Every time these things happen, I just want to remind the owners and the players: You guys make money because you’ve got a whole bunch of fans out there who are working really hard.”
