Glory walls: See! I told you I knew the President!
John Dickerson continues his subconscious obsession with celebrity photos, this time with a discussion about the hierarchy of glory walls:
“Certain photos are worth more than others. Take presidential photos, for example. The Valenti photo is at the top: a picture that places you at a world-historical event. Next in prestige: you and the president, in casual clothes. After that: a shot of a president at your house. Below that, you and the president on Air Force One or in the Oval Office. And last: shaking hands with the president at some enormous, impersonal event. (Slate)
