|You can never pose this
sort of picture. But when you catch the President in the company
of men with whom he feels comfortable, he will relax for the camera.
He was very much at ease this particular morning. Although I thought
I had the picture I wanted, I kept snapping away. I never knew when
the President might signal his receptionist that my time was up, and I
had waited months for this opportunity. It is surprising how the
adrenaline builds up as you get nearer and nearer to the Oval Office.
I would often watch others go in, as I waited outside,
and I knew it must be building for them, too. And then your turn
comes. It's like no other experience.
