Time roughs up presidents. Photos of Barack Obama on Election Night 2008 look like they were taken much longer ago. Now his face has deeper creases and crow’s feet, while his hair has turned white. “You look at the picture when they’re inaugurated and four years later, they’re visibly older,” said Connie Mariano, White House physician from 1992 to 2001. “It’s like they went in a time machine and fast-forwarded eight years in the span of four years.”

The Washington Post has an awesome interactive timelapse of photos of President Obama.

"What black people are experiencing right now is a kind of privilege previously withheld—seeing our most sacred cultural practices and tropes validated in the world’s highest office."
Over four years later, this sentence from Ta-Nehisi’s most recent success at making the internets go crazy is the best assemblage of words to describe the fist-pumping awe that I still feel when seeing the Obama family in the White House. The thrill ain’t gone, I just hadn’t been able to encapsulate it so succinctly until now.
