Barack Obama’s love letters to his first girlfriend have just been released and they’re every bit as ambitious, charismatic and intellectual as you would imagine.
And obviously nothing like anything we’ve ever been sent on Valentine’s day...
The nine full letters, sent by the former US president to his then college girlfriend, Alexandra McNear, are finally being made public to researchers through Emory University’s Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library, according to the Associated Press.
Officials said the university has had the letters since 2014, but could only make them public now.
Researchers have described his writings as ’lyrical and poetic’, offering a unique insight into the mind of a young man whose path would eventually lead to to the White House, Emory University officials added.
Salaries in the community organisations are too low to survive on right now, so I hope to work in some more conventional capacity for a year, allowing me to store up enough nuts to pursue those interests next.
