option one: obama. this man clearly knows his way around a baby. it looks to me like he participated in the raising of his own children. he's got great technique. of note:
the butt support
that baby's firmly anchored to his tummy. it isn't going anywhere.
the upper back/neck/head support
this baby is too tiny to be held without supporting its upper half, and obama's doing a great job with that.
he's into it. you can't fake that kind of appreciation for a tiny person.
he's standing so that baby can still see mama, just in case the baby's not as into obama as i am these days.
i am impressed.
option two: mccain. dude has no idea what's going on. he's uncomfortable and confused, he's making other people miserable, and he has no idea how to hold a baby.
