The Barack Pose

I think it's time this term was coined.

Head uplifted and turned sideways, eyes not looking at the camera, stern expression.  Works best on a backdrop of the American flag.

And even if it is a classic pose, I think he's really appropriated this one, just as Napoleon appropriated a rather classic gesture of having one hand inside the jacket.  Think about the words "yes, we can" and you will probably see this pose in your mind.  Even if you didn't vote for him.  (Although yes, this is probably limited to American citizens.)

How long has it been since America equivocated itself with the whole of Europe...?
