Political photo of the year

I watched this speech live. Have to agree this captures the magic of that moment perfectly.

Brooks Kraft has won “Political Photo of the Year” from the The White House News Photographers Association for this image of President Barack Obama speaking in the pouring rain during a campaign rally in Glen Allen, Virginia.
Can't imagine how they choose only one from a whole year. I've seen so many great images. In fact, this would be a good time to clear out some of my archives. I'd vote this best POTUS with baby photo of the year.

Best family photo. Barack and the kids watching Michelle speak at the DNC.

Best informal appearance by the First Couple. Valerie Jarrett's wedding.

Best formal state appearance. POTUS and the Dalai Lama.

Apologies to the photographers for failing to find the photo credits. Think most of them are by Pete Souza and of course, he wasn't eligible for the contest.
