Why We Love It
"One of my favorite things about this picture is how it evokes the entirety of a political campaign: the expectations, the swagger, the weariness."—Chris Combs, news photo editor
"The color palette of this image is so cool and smooth, with steely grays and blues. It's also a nice sideline moment, as opposed to a photo of a candidate at a podium."—Janna Dotschkal, associate photo editor
"The photographer captured a serious moment for this Uncle Sam look-alike that belies the fun of his attire. I wonder if his personality matches his facial expression or his clothing—and also if that beard is as real as it looks!"—Rina Rodriguez, associate photo producer
