    It's a well-documented fact that political types love Instagram. For politicians, it lets them connect with supporters, prove their "everyman" status, and break news on their own terms. For political journos, a few well-chosen selfies and behind-the-scenes snaps can humanize them while simultaneously confirming their insider status.

    As for us, we love the beautiful union of Insta, politicians, and news reporters because it proves that time-honored theory "they're just like us!" Posing with Kristen Bell for a selfie? Who wouldn't do that? Showing off a deep-fried turkey on Thanksgiving? Obviously. If you're intrigued, you should be. Click through for the coolest, most inspiring, and even slightly ridiculous snaps from our favorite national power players.
