Zac's Mom

Posted on 01/22/2005 11:18:23 AM PST by Zacs Mom

For all of us who could not be there in person I've put together some great pics (along with some great music to go with them) of our First Couple enjoying themselves. (click on the each of the 3 song titles to listen to the music)

Ooooh, the fifth picture is my favorite. It's so sweet. It's nice to see two people who really love each other rather than the ones who faked it for political purposes.

She is so stunning.
I think she looks like Catherine Zeta Jones (REALLY)
Her eyes and mouth are the same, anyway needless to say she is just so much classier.
Point being, the Republican first lady is a world class beauty, not just OK, but on par with famous models and actresses, and the press acts like she's just some homely librarian.

Wrong. Totally wrong. You don't dance on The Great Seal of the United States of America any more than you'd relieve yourself on the Flag - even if you've just been re-elected the First Employee. It is an important and respected device and should be accorded the same honors as the Flag; NOT used as a mere decoration.

Thanks for compiling these. They are Wow.

I loved the look on Laura's face when her husband walked out to take his oath of office. She is the most affirming individual I've ever watched.

Can anyone imagine what those pics would have looked like if the election went the other way? You just shudder at the mental images.

WHAT A LOVELY THREAD!

Thank you, Zac's Mom, for this wonderful look at our first couple. The pics had me smiling head to toe. So gracious, so elegant, so joyful and so reassuring to all of us, somehow. These two people are so special, in such an indescribable way.

And Hoosiermama, the pic of the kiss, full of that kind of love that is so great to see in the two who set the tone for our nation. God Bless Laura and George.

I am so delighted they live in our White House.

FROM THE PRESIDENT TO LAURA (Whilst dancing......)

Some day, when I'm awfully low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight

Yes you're lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft
There is nothing for me but to love you
Just the way you look tonight

Lovely....never, ever change
Keep that breathless charm
Won't you please arrange it
'Cause I love you so....just the way you look tonight

Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm,
Just the way you look tonight.

Leni
(Incurable Romantic)

I read thru a number of the sites your google link offered and really didn't find any protocol with regard to the seal.

But, since I did find that the seal has been featured as the focal point of the carpet in the Oval Office through a number of Presidents, I think your assertion might be incorrect.

See:
Bush: http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2001/12/images/20011221-2-1.jpg
Reagan: http://www.photo.net/philg/digiphotos/200209-los-angeles/reagan-library-oval-office.half.jpg
clinton: http://i.timeinc.net/time/photoessays/clintonlastdays/images/tue6.jpg

It is even used on set of the Oval Office on West Wing: http://www.inflix.com/cvfo/film_office_images/oval1.jpg

Leni,
Do you know where the words/vocal of "Laura" are/is?

They play (danced to it) at several of the balls.
I know it's a movie of the '40 or '50....

It's a beautiful song about a beautiful Lady.

I can think there's a big difference between it being a fixture in the Oval Office and 'set dressing' for a public event (or a sh_tty television show).

Laura is the face in the misty light
Footsteps that you hear down the hall
The laugh that floats on a summer night
That you can never quite recall

And you see Laura on a train that is passing through
Those eyes how familiar they seem
She gave your very first kiss to you
That was Laura....but she's only a dream

(Sigh)

What a lovely thread Zacs Mom and thanks for taking the time.

Do you know where the words/vocal of "Laura" are/is? They play (danced to it) at several of the balls.

They dance to it at ALL the balls and when I first heard it, the flood gates opened and my husband asked why I was sobbing, sheesh! How positively romantic and clearly shows a man devoted to his beautiful wife as these pictures show.

Some pundit said there hasn't been a first lady as popular as Laura since Jackie O. and I'll add she gets more beautiful with age.

Lyrics to Laura written by Johnny Mercer:

Laura is the face in the misty light,
Footsteps that you hear down the hall,
The laugh that floats on a summer night
That you can never quite recall.
And you see Laura, on the Train that is passing thru,
Those eyes, how familiar they seem.
She gave your very first kiss to you
That was Laura, but she's only a dream

I heard the same from a friend of mine today (regarding Laura's popularity). Laura really does get more beautiful every year... I wonder what her secret is. She looked radiant throughout all of the Inaugural events, but looked particularly stunning in that white ballgown.

Thanks so much for pinging me to this wonderful thread! :o)

Thank you so much for giving us those lyrics.

Peggy Noonan redeemed herself only somewhat the other night when she said that all of Washington was talking about the First Lady and how she has grown more beautiful with age.
