There is an undeniable connection between the President and little children. There was a very tender moment that went unnoticed by the media after the debate last night. Below the hemlines and knees of the adults was a curly headed little boy in a blue/white checkered shirt and what he really really wanted to do was meet the President.
While the adult Romneys' hugged and slapped each other on the back, The President took a quiet, private moment to engage with little Miles Romney and from the smile on the little boy's face it was the highlight of his evening.
Now if the story were to end there it would be sweet and something we have come to expect from The President and kids. One of Mitt's sons carries his little son onstage and over to stand beside Mitt. The father tries to pass Mitt his grandson. Mitt looks at the kid but the child is straining over his father's shoulder to get to the President. Finally the father puts the child down and he goes straight to Obama.

NOTE: In the comments I have been asked to take this diary down because it is mean-spiritied. It is posted because I thought it showed two wonderful human emotions. The Romney grandchildren are beautiful little children, and like all little children are drawn to the President. Secondly, as usual the President takes the time to make a child feel special. It is the family dynamics that I find somewhat amusing. There is no slight intended to any of the Romney Family.
