This woman really wanted to make sure she got a photo of herself with President Obama. Or maybe she just wanted a photo of herself, and happened to be hugging Obama when the urge struck. Regardless, the photographic embrace happened on Tuesday, during Obama's trip to Iowa, when he stopped for lunch at Ross's Restaurant in Bettendorf.

Obama was in the state to tour an Alcoa plant in Davenport and deliver a speech about manufacturing and the economy. On the same day, Sarah Palin traveled to the Hawkeye State for a screening in Pella of the heavily complimentary documentary about her made by Stephen Bannon.
