First, a little music to set the mood:

The thought of a bunch of adult “journalists” eagerly jumping out of the press van in the hopes that Obama would appear under the backdrop of a rainbow pretty much confirms everything we already knew:

In a Friday pool report — the write-ups of public events by individual reporters selected to represent the regular White House press corps — Nakamura detailed the apparently inspiring vision.

“[The president’s] motorcade emerged from Kailua at 7:40 a.m., just after a full and brilliant rainbow appeared over his neighborhood,” Nakamura wrote in the report, as Obama made his way to a local gym. “Your press pool got out and took photos but alas [the rainbow] disappeared before the presidential motorcade rolled by for what would have been a picture that launched a thousand metaphors.”

If a rainbow appears without Obama in the picture, is it really a rainbow?

Don’t cry — just have the graphics department Photoshop him in.
