Body Language.

There she is, Jane Roberts, in her strangely familiar pink suit, standing off to the side of the platform as President Bush introduces her husband, John, his nominee to the Supreme Court. Eyes cast down, stoic, not particularly happy in this shutter-snap moment. Daughter Josephine stays close, young Jack appears to be doing The Fish. Maybe it's just me, but Mrs. Roberts seems to be steeling herself for the approaching hurricane. My wife thinks she's just pissed because her son's acting up.
