President-Elect Barack Obama Is Paparazzo's New Target

Forget Paris Hilton or Miley Cyrus, seems like the paparazzi have found a new celebrity to follow, this one happens to be the 44th President of the United States of America.

Earlier this week pictures of a buff and shirtless President-Elect Barack Obama surfaced on the internet and caused a media frenzy. The photo, which displayed his killer abs, makes it clear that Obama is the hottest President that has ever been elected.

With such great interest by the public, seems like Obama pictures are in higher demand than Brangelina. This morning more pictures of Obama surfaced paying an emotional tribute to his grandmother Madelyn Dunham as he scattered her ashes at a Hawaiian beauty spot.

Obama stood alongside his half sister Maya Soetoro-Ng as they paid their last respects to their grandmother, who died of cancer at the age of 86 just two nights before her grandson was elected president.
Together they were seen scattering the ashes into the water at the Lanai Lookout, a scenic area of coastline on the southeast corner of Oahu, Hawaii.

The area was the same place that Obama scattered his mother's ashes following her death more than 10 years ago. Obama, casually dressed and wearing sunglasses, had attended a memorial service for his grandmother earlier that day at the First Unitarian Church in Honolulu.

Personal photos of the President (especially topless ones) are making photo agencies a ton of money and Obama has quickly become the new "it" celebrity.

An Obama transition spokesman has declined to comment on the photos, but if his security team doesn't tighten their measures, the media will make Obama their new Britney Spears.

What are your thoughts, do you want to see more pictures of your President in his private settings or are these pictures downplaying his role and influence in our country by making him look...normal?
