In Rising Star, historian and author David J. Garrow writes about Obama’s ex-girlfriend, Sheila Miyoshi Jager:
Obama lived with and loved in Chicago…whom he asked to marry him….Sheila Miyoshi Jager…Jager was of Dutch and Japanese ancestry.
In early 1987, when Obama was 25, she sensed a change. “He became. . . so very ambitious” very suddenly,” she told Garrow. “I remember very clearly when this transformation happened, and I remember very specifically that by 1987, about a year into our relationship, he already had his sights on becoming president.”
It created complications…Garrow writes…it was “coupled with a heightened awareness that to pursue [the presidency] he had to fully identify as African American.”
Now 100-years-old (for all intents and purposes), Jager’s body is still passable:
However, I personally find her facially repulsive:
But the past is the past.
If I was Obama??
I would constantly start petty fights w/ Michelle until she eventually demanded a divorce (so that I don’t feel guilty, and the kids don’t blame me). Then, once separated– using my vast wealth and fame– I would do everything in my power to seduce 20-year-old Eileen Kelly (or a close approximation thereof) for obvious reasons.
At some point, after I’ve used Eileen up, I would settle down w/ someone slightly more age appropriate– such as actress Sarah Bolger.
