History in a photo

Forget about politics, who is talking to whom, and all that mess. Just take a look at this photo from the White House's blog. It's astounding to see all the power in one room.

But what strikes me is this: these ten people (Ginsberg's off screen) are, at this moment, just people. Sure, they are members of the Supreme Court and the President and Vice-President but they really are just people. Really. Take a look. That's history you see.

I've always enjoyed the candid photographs of our nation's leaders. The one's where most of the world is away and you get a glimpse of the real person. That's how I see this photo. Wonderful.
