He has such nice hands. I'm a hand gal... and it REALLY has nothing to do with my last name.

You're so right, Karly.

I have never seen a picture of the other pastey white man look so peaceful and pleasant...he always looks mean. I am going to blow up this picture as it makes me feel calm!

At the risk of sounding like a cultist ... I love that picture. To me, it personifies the Buddhist principle of metta, also known as 'loving kindness.' It's one thing to look like that when you're holding your own child; to be able to look like that when holding someone else's child is something we should all aspire to.

We have a similar imperative in Judaism, "hesed." It loosely translates as an act of loving-kindness. Hesed is considered a greater gift than "tzedakah" (charity).

Charity is done with one's money, loving-kindness is done with one's person.

Hi Hazel and welcome!

He kind of looked like this all through the debate -- so calm and nonplussed by anything McNasty threw his way.

I was checking out his hands during the debate the other night!
