Who needs this cut-and-paste when there is some really good portraiture out there.
In this obviously sympathetic cover, I wonder if RS felt it could best help out by giving prominent play — Obama’s glance also highlighting the region – to the flag pin. Also, I don’t know what kind of touch up was involved, but this is the first time I’ve notice the gray hair. Looks to close the calendar gap with Mac a bit.
