Obama's Closet Aide Shoots Canon XT
May 27, 2008

There is a story in today's New York Times about Sen. Obama's "Body Man," that is, the campaign aide who carries his coat; has pockets full of advil, nicorette, and pens; alerts him to schedule; and dials the phone number of Superdelegates.

Well, Obama's "Body Man", Reggie Love, a graduate of and football and basketball player at Duke, keeps a camera by him at all times. He has taken over 10,000 pics of the campaign. What kind of camera does he use? Canon XT. Doesn't he know its obsolete! How can such an old camera take pictures of the next President! What, No Live View!!!! Shocking! Well, at least its not a Nikon!
