Obama and Marriage

For the past several days as I digested Tuesday's results I've been mulling over a lengthy - and honestly gloating - post about the vanquishing of the far right and the United States' jump to the left [cue Rocky Horror Picture Show].  It was to be entitled An American Exorcism (a somewhat bizarre title alluding to the fact that more Republicans believe in demonic possession than in global warming...go figure).

Anyway, partly out of laziness and partly out of a desire to move forward I decided to scrap that post and go with something a little lighter and a little happier.

From the Des Moines Register...
Sayli Gibbs made the wedding arrangements for the Urbandale couple about six months ahead of time, and everything was going smoothly until she heard from a Living History Farms employee that “something big” was going to be happening on the same day as her wedding. 
Gibbs learned that Obama would be holding a rally in the exact place her wedding was supposed to be.  
Luckily for them, Obama’s rally kept to its schedule and they were able to set up in time. “The wedding started on time, Obama was gone on time, and everything worked out,” Gibbs said. 
Obama didn’t leave without acknowledging the couples’ happy day, though. He left behind a parting gift with a personal touch.  Inside the bag was a silver tray with the presidential seal and Obama’s engraved signature, as well as a handwritten note reading “Congratulations on the wedding. Michelle and I wish you a great life together. Barack Obama.”
And there's this...

P.S. I'm still gloating though!
