I don’t know if it’s been photoshopped, but I love this photograph of Dilma Rouseff, the hand-picked successor of Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

Oscar Niemeyer, 102-year-old Brazilian starchitect, got involved early in the campaign by publicly endorsing Rouseff.

Brazil’s first female president.
