White House unveils new official Obama portrait, this time with a smile

On the eve of his inauguration, the White House today released President Obama's official photograph for his second term. Shot in the Oval Office on Dec. 6 by White House photographer Pete Souza, it depicts a grayer, but definitely happier Obama -- flashing a giant smile. (See jump for his first-term portrait.)

Please, what brand of wristwatch does the President wear? Love the display of the watch and the fingers of his right hand. Very practical.

Very nice picture. A little more grey, slight wrinkles. Four years of aging hard work. So far a personal success for the President and his teams.
Congratulations.
