The kitchen table chat is a staple visual metaphor for politicians. In this photo, President Obama appears to be making a point to Val and Paul Keller. The couple recently refinanced their underwater mortgage under a federal program. The Kellers remain undecided about who to vote for—unlike their fruit basket forming Obama’s “O” logo in the background.
NBC has a 66-image photostream of Obama doing “regular guy” stuff: bowling, biking, and eating burgers. It’s titled “Just Your Average Joe-bama.”
President Obama is worth as much as $10 million, according to his annual financial disclosure statement.
