In 2012, President Obama looks a little leaner and his hair is a little grayer. In New Hampshire, in the sweltering high school gymnasium, he closed his eyes, lost for a fraction of a second in solitary respite, as he used a handkerchief to dab the sweat off his forehead in the middle of his speech.

 

If you just squinted your eyes a little, and looked at only the first row of President Obama Supporters at a campaign rally, it might not seem all that different from four years ago.

 

The raw electricity still radiates around him. At his rallies supporters still sink their fingers into his back, middle-aged men still, on rare occasions, tear up in his presence, and crowds still stand out in the rain to hear him speak.
