US election: Obama campaign

FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama is picked-up and lifted off the ground by Scott Van Duzer, left, owner of Big Apple Pizza and Pasta Italian Restaurant during an unannounced stop in Ft. Pierce, Fla. Campaign 2012 is rich with images that conjure the seriousness and silliness that unfold side-by-side in any presidential race. It's not everyone who gets to hoist a president like a sack of potatoes.
