    Hi carlisle. Thanks for the feedback. That picture by our Larry Fisher (as well as the similar one that became the most retweeted image of 2012) was taken in Dubuque. The Obamas visited Davenport later that day. Here is the original photo and caption: http://qctimes.com/gallery/photos-obama-visits-q-c/collection_c995c128-e6fb-11e1-a4f6-001a4bcf887a.html#31

    That photo of Michelle and Barack Obama wasn't taken in Dubuque - it was taken in the Village of East Davenport.
