On Saturday, Barack Obama was just one of the guys, playing the part of groomsman at a coworker's wedding. His "longtime aide," Marvin Nicholson, married Helen Pajcic and the two of them managed to keep Obama from completely overshadowing them in the newly released wedding photos.
I don't know what I expected. A rainbow to jut from shoulder to tuxedoed shoulder? A golden halo? A sign lettered with sunlight that spelled, "It's your special day but I'm more important than you"? A phalanx of secret service shouting "blue! blue!" while the couple recited their vows?
None of that. Obama looks like just another guy in some normal dude's wedding party. He might sit next to you at the reception and you'd ask him what he does for a living without listening to the answer. He didn't even get a plus one—FLOTUS is conspicuously absent.
Also, take one moment to picture President Obama at a bachelor party.
Yup, just another normal wedding officiated by damn John Kerry.
Now that guy looks out of place.
