The Presidential visit yields goodies

Presidential M&M’S | McCarran International Airport | August 25, 2015 | 11:02 a.m.

Whenever the president flies into Las Vegas, there’s a swarm around the office windows like sharks to chum. Phone cameras make their happy little noises as the newsroom tries to capture a moment with Air Force One, the closest many of us will ever get to Barack Obama. While he was in town for the National Clean Energy Summit, another piece of precious cargo ended up on display at McCarran. Presidential M&M’s—collectible goodies in boxes with the Presidential Seal and the embossed autograph of the man himself. Steve Marcus shot a lot of striking images of Obama, but considering how many years he’s been in office I’ve seen his face a few times. This made me look twice.
