Article Photos: Va. escapes worst of recession but new fears ahead 9/13

  In this Monday, Oct. 8, 2012 photo, Molly Lovato, a volunteer with the Obama campaign, poses for a photograph with her daughter Nola Trindade, 4, at their home in Leesburg, Va. Lovato credits the president with steering the country away from financial disaster. "I think he kept us from sliding into a depression," she says. "I'm really dumbfounded by people who say 'Why didn't he fix this?' and it's 20 minutes later." She compares reviving the economy to gutting and then rehabbing a home. "It takes a hot minute for everything to unravel," she says, "but to put it back together is really very difficult." (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)
