    The quasi-copyright claim below the picture is misleading and not in the spirit of transparent government.

    Follow the link under "Additional Information" that says, "United States Government Work." It explains that such official government documents are not copyrighted:


    You can't use an official government document to imply anybody's commercial or political endorsement without their consent.

    But (at least in the US) you CAN reproduce, remix, and redistribute this photograph to your heart's content. Don't believe anybody who tells you otherwise.

    (BigGuy1611: If you can explain this to the folks at your local photo retailer, you can have your own photo book printed with your ideal choice of shots. No need to wait!)

    This (beautiful) picture, for me, totally represents Vice President Biden, toward President Obama : Help, and Support.

    Biden, you are a such a fool.
    How many stupid things is vice-president allowed to say? He never stops. Idiot.

    This photo moistened my eye... The humanity of Mr President is just humbling. Imagine some presidents being held like that!

    I mean, I look at this and see a humble younger man getting wisdom from an elder just like ordinary down-to-earth people would do.
