- Former U.S. President, Barack Obama opens up about being in love with another woman
- This was years before meeting his current wife, Michelle
Barack Hussein Obama is an American politician best known for being the 44th President of the United States.
The Obamas have several best-selling memoirs that helped in Barack’s 2008 presidential race.
The books have encouraged a couple of films about Obama’s time at Columbia University and his first date with Michelle Obama.
Also after they left the White House, the couple signed a $65 million dollar book deal with Penguin Random House.
And now it has been revealed that the Historian David Garrow is launching a new biography on the rise of the former president in a book with almost 1400 pages.
In this new book, we can find the story of how Barack proposed to a former girlfriend years before he met Michelle.
Sheila Miyoshi Jager, who is now a professor at Oberlin College revealed to Garrow that back in 1986, Obama had proposed to her.
Jager had told him ‘not yet’ because her mother thought Obama was too young and then the former president changed his goals.
‘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.’
The book continues on saying that Obama started dating Michelle in 1990-1991 and eventually Jager lost contact with him.
It seems that many writers and publishing houses still have the former president’s life on the radar as their adventures post-White House are still being closely followed.
Therefore, there might be many more books written on the subject of the Obamas.
