Now here is an image that is truly remarkable in what it tells us about the United States of America. It depicts the first ever African-American presidential couple in the process of their being succeeded to the Oval Office by the first ever private businessman and his wife, a Slovenian former nude model. And these persons are not merely posing for a photographer at some shallow celebrity gala. They are in the process of peaceful succession to the highest office in their country and the most powerful leadership post anywhere on Earth. And there hasn’t been a single observer, amidst the raw sewage that passes for journalism these days, who has cared to remark on the sheer monumentality of the meaning frozen in this image.
