As it turns out, along with budget issues caused by Obama’s campaign spending, the increasing torrent of major Democrat party members choosing not to be seen at the 2012 DNC necessitated taking the group photo early.

The choice of a black-and-white photo wasn’t driven by cost issues however. It was chosen as a symbolic image for the racial politics and racial divisions and distrust that the Democrats hope will spur Obama to victory again.
