How are we only just now seeing this amazing document, so many months into Obama’s second term? From 1979, the president of the United States’s prom photo. Wow. Look! Hawaii in the 1970s! Everyone got lei’d!
Time has the full story on that magical (okay, largely banal) night, courtesy of Obama’s high school best friend’s date, Kelli Allman. As an added bonus, she throws in his inscription from her 1979 yearbook: “It has been so nice getting to know you this year. You are extremely sweet and foxy . . . I hope we can keep in touch this summer, even though Greg will be gone. Call me up and I’ll buy you lunch. . . Good luck in everything you do and stay happy. Your friend, Love, Barry Obama.”
