The White House Flickr feed serves as a slideshow of Obama's time in office. It's a visual representation of the highs and lows of the job, a living document from which we can better understand the day-to-day activities of the President. People tend to share the photos that make the president appear the most human, whether smiling with his wife, or bracing for the bin Laden raid in the Situation Room, or mimicking a meme. Obama was the candidate who best understood the power of picture, and he's the president who has given us the greatest illustration of the demands and responsibilities that come with the job.
