don’t believe the hype


And you thought Obama was cool now… by mchoy

Take a look at him back in the day… When our President-elect, soon to be President, Barack Obama was a freshman at Occidental College (before transferring to Columbia of course) he was approached by Lisa Jack, a young aspiring photographer. The young Afro-ed student agreed to be the subject of her photography.

Recently Jack, now a psychologist, found the pictures and they have been released in an interesting little photo essay by Time magazine.

The photos (some of our favorites and the link to the entire photo essay after the JUMP) provide a engaging look into the raw personality and charisma of the man who would be president, before all the political refinement…

Now… maybe its just me, but that doesn’t look like a normal cigarette. It’s good to see that our Knight in shining armor has a bit of personality beneath that fine tuned political facade.
