A really interesting photo series of members of the incoming Obama administration and key members of Congress in the NY Times magazine that is worth your time. Several things stood out to me, chief of which is just how attractive many of the people are- Reggie Love, Mona Sutphen, and Eugene Kang all look like models. The other thing that struck me was how many people with red hair there were. Additionally, you really do get a sense of who they are just from a picture. The seriousness of demeanor and posture of Jones, Gates, and Shinseki, contrasted with the relaxed pose of Reggie Love and the intriguing gaze of Samantha Power.
Finally, of all the people pictured, only one of them really looks to me like he has no business in politics whatsoever- David Axelrod. Every time I look at him, I just think he is the prototype of what I have in mind when I picture the private detective in crime novels. Or maybe the guy who announced old boxing matches.
