The gravity of this day is tempered, I think, by this moment, this look between a husband and wife, a private look on the most public of stages. Pride and love.
Their partnership brought them to this place. Michelle was the family's main breadwinner for many years, before her husband wrote his first book and got on the bestsellers list, when he was working grassroots, community jobs and as a state senator. What a ride!
I hope they still look at each other like this eight (yeah I said it) years from now.
