What passes these days for political analysis:
"Obama's deepest resource: family"
These are very cute pictures, and his little one is a very cute kid.
But, if you don't realize that photos on the White House lawn with the kids and the dog are planned and staged by the White House public relations office (and coordinated with the secret service and the photographers), you're not smart enough to be writing political analysis.
And, if you realize the photos are staged, but you play along with the game, you're just being a tool of the White House media office.
