A great set of pictures taken by David Katz that gives us an inside peek at the anticipation felt by Obama, his staff and his family before the results were announced. During numerous speeches of his campaign, he spoke of hope. In these pictures, you can sense the eager anticipation he must have had but just as we would expect from our president, you also see a calmness and a steadiness that we have all come to admire. Taken near Grant Park in Chicago, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel presidential suite. You can check out the whole set here or you can see below for my favorites.

  • Look at how worried Michelle was about her dress .. she shoulda listened to her instincts.
  • cool pictures. did anyone else notice how he looked on stage after his speech? you would think someone who just won an election would be a lot happier, but he seemed kind of worried. perhaps he was tired, in a state of shock or maybe he just realized what he was going to be taking on. either way you're right...he does have a steady/calm that is definitely admirable.
