Courtesy the Obama-Biden Transition Project -- which I keep confusing with the Alan Parsons Project -- this photo from Friday's press conference during which the president-elect named former Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk the chief U.S. trade representative. Already made it my wallpaper. And Valentine's Day card. Still, though, need a better caption. --Robert Wilonsky
