The endorsement of the first female presidential nominee of a major party by the first black president was marked by a hug at the DNC, but President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s tender moment was also the most Photoshop-able of the campaign trail yet.

The hug between Clinton and Obama during the third night of the Democratic National Convention could not have been more perfect – for Photoshoppers, at least.

The contrast between the two and the background made it easy, almost too easy, to turn their hug into one of the greatest political memes of all time.

The internet took Barack and Hillary on a journey through time and history.

Across political lines…

Into parallel universes…

All the way into pop culture…

Even into our hearts…

At least neither touched the other's butt, unlike a certain other candidate.
