Picking up and kissing babies is a crucial skill for any politician and it appears President Obama has mastered the baby photo-op.

Obama is pictured here carrying a baby as he prepares to leave a campaign stop in Delray Beach, Florida on Tuesday, the day after the final debate with Republican Mitt Romney. Very cute.
