    Presidential Selfies 'Passing Fad or Permanent Fixture?"

    The 2013 Clinton Foundation Holiday Party went off with a bang, on Monday in New York, recognizing the employees of the foundation for their hard work, but that wasn't the story that had guests and patrons buzzing.

    DJ Justin Dawson, residential and popular New York DJ, was lucky enough to not only take a photo with the former President, Hillary and Chelsea, but also had the foresight to take a "selfie" with President Clinton.

    As we've all heard, the "selfie" was Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year in 2013. I asked Justin how exactly he got President Clinton to take a "selfie" with him. Justin responded, "Knowing that I wanted a shot that I could tweet out to my followers at that special moment, I simply asked President Clinton if he minded?" Clinton responded, "Sure!", and they both leaned back for the photo.
    The bigger question we're all wondering is if Clinton wanted to one up Obama on what looks like the hottest trend in the new year, The Presidential "selfie!"

    (Photo credit for the "family photo" goes to the Clinton Foundation's staff photographer, Adam Schultz.)
