How are we only just now seeing this amazing document, so many months into Obamaâ€™s second term? From 1979, the president of the United Statesâ€™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 Obamaâ€™s high school best friendâ€™s date, Kelli Allman. As an added bonus, she throws in his inscription from her 1979 yearbook: â€śIt 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.â€ť
