has a slideshow of a 1980 photoshoot, when the freshman Barack Obama was asked if he would mind posing for a classmate of his.

Two quick things: 1. It terrifies me that someday, inadvertently, I will become famous and every little thing that I've done in my entire life, every time I said something stupid, every piece of awful high school poetry, will suddenly become fodder for the news media. 2. Why is Obama wearing what looks like a wedding ring in 1980?
No need to worry. For a mere 99.99, I can guarantee you that if your fame passes a certain threshold, then I will simply kill you.
I would guess, based on those photos, that they 'got it on'. He is a good-looking guy......is it bad that I have impure thoughts about my president?
The problem there, bernockle, is that I'm sufficiently dull and unimportant that the only thing that would draw the kind of media attention I fear would be a spectacular, humorous or especially grizzly demise. By which point your services would be rather too late. 'And now a Prying Eye exclusive on the mousey-haired academic who was squashed flat when that toilet unit was accidentally jettisoned by Air Force One. First up, this woman says she wouldn't go out with him in high school because he was "a big dweeb".'
Yeah, what is up with that ring? Maybe his dad's?
re ëspecially grizzly demise - that's an easy one to avoid Dreadnought, just stay outta bear country
thank you thank you I'll be here all week
and seriously, what is up with that wacky e thingy I've got happening?
I wonder if people had the same reactions to JFK, except without the internet to give everyone quick access to his most embarrassing moments. (Not that I think these would be embarrassing, just sort of endearing.)

"The fact that I find Cheney quite hot in this pic is deeply disturbing to me."
George W looks to be in his mid-twenties in that yearbook photo, and I may have made some snarky comment to #2 just then about that.
