Awwwwww…Posted: January 12, 2008
Despite politician-holding-baby being a cliché as old as photography itself, maybe you can tell something about a person by how he or she responds to a baby (and by how the baby feels about the whole thing). Freelance writer and filmmaker Darren Garnick made it his business to get his daughter Dahlia into the arms of every presidential candidate in New Hampshire, and posted a photo essay of his results in Slate. I’ve excerpted some of the nicer photos for this post. All of these make me feel good about whose hands our country’s future might be in.
