Since his rise as a senator, I've collected each of Mr. Presidents covers from Time Magazine and men's fashion magazines until his first inauguration. Yesterday, (coincidentally on his 54th birthday) I came across the above cover of Esquire. Captured intently with a piercing yet subtle look of confidence, in two elections, this confidence or "swag" has not diminished. He's managed to "ensure us of our greatness" with style, elegance and charisma. With his last term coming to a close, you can still see the determination in his face knowing that there is still a job that needs to be done.
Happy Birthday Mr. Barack Obama (#HBD #POTUS).
