Any candidate can trot out pictures of themselves kissing babies.

But the pics of him with the black kids, wow, what a role model. No matter what you think about him becoming president, how many people say "Boy, I want my kid to be just like John McCain when he grows up."

Ok, I'm not even a baby person, and that was heartwarming.

That was nice. I really like three of them. The one where he has his hand on the boys head and is shaking his hand, The little girl giving him a hi-five, and the one of him shaking the boys hand who is standing behind the crowd control barrier.

The girl shows excitement. Hope is his motto in this election, I 'm tired of the word, but looking at the two boys faces that's what I see.

It totally wierds me out that people hand off their babies to total strangers for photo-ops, but some of those pics still manage to get get an "Aw!" out of me, especially that last one.

Have you guys seen this?
