It's OK to be jealous of this picture of Ken Griffey Jr. and President Obama hanging out together

President Obama is also kind of cool. He knows how to give a good fist bump, he's an OK dancer and, well, he's the President of the United States of America. 

On Thursday afternoon, the two posed for a photo together in the White House and the coolness was nearly too much to bear:

Perhaps they talked about foreign policy, perhaps they talked about Griffey's golf game. Either way, we want one of those salmon-colored blazers.
