Fame Is Fleeting

Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney picks up Levi Vandenberg, five months, of Dover, N.H., as he greets a ropeline of supporters as he campaigns at Portsmouth International Airport, in Newington, N.H., Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)
       This picture was taken this morning in New Hampshire....nothing new to see a politician kissing babies..except when those babies are related to you.  This little guy, Levi, is my great nephew.  His Momma, my niece Carly, is the one smiling in the gray sweatshirt....unhappy because she had to be there so early she didn't get her hair done. Oh well, the price you have to pay for 15 seconds of fame!  I'm thinking she may want to frame that shot...unless Mitt loses then it will just be a fond memory...

The baby will be famous either way. He's getting a good view of the big crowd and he made it in the media. It's Blog worthy. It will look great in the family album.

Her hair looks fine :). Levi will want to keep this, even if Mitt loses, I think. Pretty cool!

Good that whoever took the photo, got the baby with Mitt and your smiling niece looking on.
Perfect!

Cool, cool, cool. Mommy's hair are always charming, made up or not. That pic is worth framing anyway.

Nice photo op!

Yes, it's a great pic, whether or not he wins. (hoping he does, though). It should be framed.

Fond memories are not to be underrated. So cool that your niece got this photo taken.

Very nice picture. I get the feeling that Mitt is a real baby lover, and I like that about him.
