Behind the Scenes with Barack Obama
By Garance Franke-Ruta
As the Nov. 5 editions of newspapers across the country have sold out their runs -- and even reprints of those runs -- certain Election Night images of Barack, Michelle, Malia and Sasha Obama have started to take on an iconic quality.
Now the man and family behind the iconic images have released a set of 82 election-night photos from President-elect Obama's photographer, to fill out the historical record of that night. The shots, posted on "Barack Obama's photostream" on Flickr, the popular photo-sharing site, include images of Obama and his wife sitting on a couch waiting for results, Obama slumping; Sasha playing what looks like patty-cake with a young man; Malia giving her dad a last-minute fist-bump; and a heartfelt hug between Obama and his campaign manager, David Plouffe.
