TPM has the photo I have been looking forward to all day.
Body language bits:
The President looks relaxed and energetic. Head forward, as always, with his Gary Cooper frame.
Romney looks stiff and still tired. You can see it in the close-up on TPM. Romney has always had a bit of stiffness, a lack of fluidity, and I have come to associate this with a man that is playing a role, as opposed to someone who is improvising, rolling with the punches.
When you have a role to play, things can go wrong, scripts and plans can get off track. You can start to look like a marionette. When you are just improvising, there is no possible wrong thing that can happen, and no plan to keep on track.
The subdued red, white, and blue tie was a nice touch.
A small lesson: the person who crosses his arm over his body in a photo is generally perceived to be the weak one; they are seen as conscious of their vulnerability, and guarded. That’s a big reason that Romney looks so defeated here. Be sure to be the one to reach across the open space, and not your body.
