Can you imagine if it was First Lady Sheila Obama and not First Lady Michelle Obama?
According to a new book, Barack Obama proposed marriage to another woman before he met Michelle. In his book The Making of Barack Obama, David Barrow says that he actually popped the question to Sheila Miyoshi Jager twice -- and got rejected twice -- before falling for Michelle!
He also claims that Obama believed even when he was in law school that he'd be President someday.
Jager is now a professor of East Asian Studies at Oberlin College. Pretty neat!
