Barack Obama's Prom Picture

Flashback to President Obama's Prom Night

Time magazine unearthed never-before-seen photos of President Obama at his senior prom, and he looks exactly the same! Then 17-year-old Barry Obama went with a white jacket and Hawaiian trappings for the 1979 prom at his alma mater Punahou School in Honolulu.

The magazine also published a note Obama wrote in friend Kelli's yearbook. In case you're wondering, the word "foxy" was in his vocabulary. Obama wrote: "It has been so nice getting to know you this year. You are extremely sweet and foxy." He continued, "Call me and I'll buy you lunch sometime." I wonder if the offer is still good today?
