Obama In High School: "The Audacity Of Hoop"

Obamahoops This is purportedly a picture of Barack (then Barry) Obama as a high school basketball player in Hawaii.

It's also, I would add, a decent representation of the his current demographic -- young, male, wealthy (he went to a fancy public school).   Oh, and white.   

In the related post, the sports blog Deadspin tries to figure out which candidate would be better for college sports, and in particular basketball (The Audacity Of Hoop).

Now all we need are pictures of him and the other candidates going to school, graduating, doing their homework.
