    David Marannis, in writing the upcoming biography of President Obama, tracked down his two ex-girlfriends before Michelle, and they were apparently pretty candid about their relationships, according to the book excerpt in Vanity Fair.


    This, from the recollection of ex Genevieve Cook:

    He's a smoothie! ;D

    I refuse to believe he's ever loved anyone but me.

    Can't wait for this book. The relationship stuff fills in a lot of gaps from the Remnick book, it sounds like. I remember we talked on here about how "no one has ever written about"TM his pre-marriage love life. Remnick had some quotes about how he dated and was popular with the ladies, but no names or anything. Well, here you go.

    Maraniss has an interview up at Vanity Fair's Web site where he said that Obama was really cool about it when he brought her up. He basically was curious about how she was doing these days.

    He read Maya Angelou and Toni Morrison with her?

    That's a smooth operator.

    All you ever have to know about him is that he asked out and married his mentor attorney at one of the whitest of white shoe law firms in America. When he was a summer associate, which is essentially an intern trying to get a job (which he turned down). If you know anything about big firm culture, whether its legal or Wall Street or whatever, that's an astounding amount of chutzpah.

    Uh, oh.

    This may not end well. (Not here. In other dark corners of the Internet.)

    I read the excerpts yesterday at VF and he definitely had the grad TA mack going on, from the sounds of it.

    I know there's a market for this kind of stuff, but I really couldn't care less about ex-girlfriends of Obama, Romney, Newt Gingrich, George Bush, Bill Clinton, ARod, Rip Torn, Abe Vigoda, Yakov Smirnoff or anyone else.

    I don't really get the fascination.

    You dug up a post from 2008 just to try out that line?

    I could swear it was repeated more recently, but I couldn't find it. This is what I cam up with.
