Is it just me, or did anyone else notice the flood of "Oh, my gosh!" news stories from Washington? Yes, folks, President-elect Obama had his official presidential protrait snapped... with a digital camera.
So why is this news?
Yes, he's the first president (well, almost president) to have his official portrait shot with a digital camera. But isn't that what we'd expect from a man who's in tune with the digital age? I mean, the man is talking about separation anxiety because they're going to take away his Blackberry.
Mr. Obama is completely at ease with digital technology - just look at his campaign. Why would it be a surprise for him to have his portrait taken with a digital camera.
The White House press corps needs to catch up with the rest of the world. It would have been much bigger news if he'd had the protrait shot on film.
