At lunchtime today the Guardian posted an article about pics on the barackobamadatcom Flickr page. Intimate pictures of the first family-elect and their running mates waiting for the results behind the scenes at Grant Park had ben added by the official photographer. I managed to view the thumbnails of the first page before it all crashed. There’ve been over 97,000 views of the set.

The President -elect has a Flickr account, how cool and in-touch is that?

The downside is every aspect of their  family life is now under scrutiny. Is that too much pressure for such young children; so much more than it was for Amy Carter?

Edited to say that it now seems to be working again and you can access individual pics and both pages.( 126,000 + views)
