A day in the life

A year after being elected President, the Chicago Tribune was allowed to record most of Barack Obama's workday in words and pictures -- with a few ground rules: no photos of his daughters, no photos of paperwork and no quotes. The afterglow of Obama's own election hasn't been extinguished, the day revealed. Sweden's Fredrik Reinfeldt beamed at having his picture taken with Obama. The Harvard lawyers, his former classmates seen in this picture, buzzed with excitement. And young staffers from the White House, who scored a visit to the Oval Office by having finished the Marine Corps Marathon, were exuberant.
