New Obama family portrait, by Annie Leibovitz

The Obamas in the Green Room, Sept. 1, 2009, with Sasha, second from left, and Malia, right. (Annie Leibovitz for the White House)

The most famous celebrity photographer in America did a photo shoot with the most celebrated family in America. Here's the new family portrait of the Obamas, released Friday by the White House. Annie Leibovitz, renowned for her work with Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair, took it in early September. (Yes, she's the one in dire financial straits that could lead to bankruptcy; no, this doesn't change her bottom line necessarily -- she didn't take a fee from the White House for her work.)

Sasha looks like Obama's mother and sister.

I think Mrs. Obama would've been better served by a brighter dress color. She blends too much into the dark doorway and dark green wall behind her.

Michelle Obama looks like James Brown...

If only George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, etc. could come back to life and see this heart-warming First Family portait, they'd see how far their efforts in establishing a truly free and equal society have come.

That's an iconic portrait. The family is beautiful, and Ms. Leibovitz is a great artist.
