Here's a political shot I've never seen before. It shows Barack Obama speaking at a rally in Indianapolis. The crowd is reflected in the teleprompters. REUTERS.

Now we've got to have a upbeat animal photo. Here's a giant panda cub at the Giant Panda Protection and Research Center in Yaan, China. Yep, that is cute. GETTY IMAGES.
