This original drawing of Senators Charles Schumer, Harry Reid, Dianne Feinstein, and Edward Kennedy, done by president-elect Barack Obama, sold at a charity auction last year for $2,075.
Understandably, the savvy purchaser is now receiving six-figure offers from people wishing to purchase the drawing, but the owner is refusing to sell it.
A clever acquisition indeed for memorabilia collector Wayne Berzon.
"I'm not sure I would sell it for any price. I mean, how many times can you put up a piece of original artwork by a president of the United States who also happens to have made history? It's a wonderful conversation piece."
Implications - Barack Obama follows the image of former president, John F. Kennedy in his status as a celebrity politician.
