A Photo.

If a “Photo speaks 1,000 words,” then a panoramic photo of every important American political figure (and a lot of other folks) during Obama’s inauguration speech speaks one million or so.
Check out the pursed lips on former President Bush and the sleeping Clarence Thomas. Mr. Cheney looks a bit anxious and Mr. Clinton looks a bit miffed. Mr. Gingrich seems bored. Ms. Obama’s got a bible. The Secret Service appear as if they have nothing to do.
Hey, who are all those people that got front-row seats before the Marine band? And there’s a nice automated stitching error that the photographer notes well.
