So this photo, of the White House staff watching events unfold in the Situation Room, is making the rounds. I really appreciate Obama and Clinton's expressions.

Boingboing pointed out some nuances (in part from here): What's also amazing is how quickly this photo has been turned into an array of pseudo-funny Memes. My favorite was the "All Obama". "Playstation" was also pretty funny.
