Presidential Watch Sunday: An Unprecedented Look At The Presidency

Presidential Watch Sunday
An Unprecedented Look At The Presidency

"Men are like wine–some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age. –Pope John XXIII.

Welcome to the tenth installment of Presidential Watch Sunday. In case you noticed, I missed last week because I was a little overwhelmed with a fascinating project I have been working on.

I would like to thank the White House and Pete Souza (The Official White House Photographer) for giving us unprecedented access to photos of the United States Presidency.

This first photo is of President Obama on Air Force One heading to the All Star Game with baseball legend Willie Mays.

In this next photo we see President Obama practicing his pitch before he throws out the first ball at the 2009 All Star Game.

In this next photo we see President Obama in Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's office at his dacha outside Moscow, Russia on July 6, 2009. I think Medvedev is showing Obama Jake's Rolex Watch Blog on his computer? Just kidding ;-))))))))))))

In this next photo, President Obama walks with Russian President Dimitry Medvedev at his dacha outside Moscow on July 6, 2009. I looks to me like Medvedev is wearing a Franck Mueller watch.
