Backstage Photos from Election Night

If you haven't seen these images yet, Flickr has some nice photos of the Obamas and Bidens watching the election results together, as well as pictures from the speech in Grant Park.

Not sure what to make of the simple, almost shabby-looking hotel room. Looks like a single with a double bed at Holiday Inn.

But I like the feeling of the photos. They seem genuinely intimate.

Michelle and her girls, a cousin, and the Obama Brain Trust in the background: David Axelrod (seated in the back on the right), Chief Strategist; David Plouffe (standing), Campaign Manager; and Robert Gibbs (seated on the left), Communications Director.

Not everyone looks excited by Dad becoming President.

Nice to know the President gets along with his mother-in-law.

Uncle Joe. "But you can call me Joey Five Cents!"
