PhotoNews: Barack And Michelle Obama As A Young Couple

...The Winning Picture?

















In the morning of Tuesday, November 6, 2012, the day for the United States Presidential election, a very moving photograph of President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama as a young couple was posted on the facebook page of Michelle Obama.

The picture was accompanied by this equally moving caption: "She voted for him for the same reason she married him - his character. Cast your ballot for President Obama today."

The photo, according to the Telegraph  "attracted over 250,000 'likes' from viewers in seven hours and thousands of comments." It may have equally attracted a sizable number of votes to President Obama.
