Presidential Swag

It's safe to say that OSTT is not the spot to get your daily fix on politics - no questioning that. It's no coincidence that that anytime something shady happens - from work promotions to sports - the first comforting phrase you often here is 'its just politics'. Not a lot of positive connotation in that word there. Anyway, I saw this picture online the other day, and it struck a chord with me. I've always prided myself as treating the CEO the same way I treat the people that come in to water the plants or empty the trash in my office at the end of the day. It really seems like the majority of people out here are only focused on what the next man can do for them to ascend to the next step in their journey.

Is the picture above just a photo-op? Who knows. It's politics. But either way - the message is strong, and its good to see the tone being set at the top.
