Barack Obama proposed to another woman, Sheila Jager, who rejected him twice before he met and married Michelle

According to a new biography, former US president Barack Obama proposed to a woman he dated in the 80's who rejected his proposal twice before he met and married his wife, Michelle Obama. The woman is said to be Sheila Miyoshi Jager who is of Dutch and Japanese descent.

The author of the new book, "Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama," David Garrow, says Obama met Jager in the mid-'80s when he was doing community organizing in Chicago.

Garrow said that when he interviewed Jager, she told him that even back then, Obama had a strong belief he'd someday become President of the United States.

She also told the author Obama had "a deep-seated need to be loved and admired." Adding that in  1986 Obama asked her to marry him, but her parents were opposed because they thought she was too young to get married, so she turned him down, but they continued dating.

Then, Garrow says, Obama's presidential ambitions became a centerpiece of their relationship, which caused a conflict between them because he worried that marrying a non-African-American wife would do him political damage.

Garrow says he "felt trapped between the woman he loved and the destiny he knew was his."

Obama then went to Harvard Law School in 1988 and the relationship became strained but Jager says Obama again asked her to marry him before he left, but she was off on a research trip to Seoul and rejected his proposal, for the second time.

Obama then met and started dating Michelle after their first year in law school but, according to Garrow, he was still occasionally seeing Jager. But when he solidified his relationship with Michelle, he stopped seeing Jager.

Jager, is now a professor of East Asian Studies at Oberlin College.

And he's lucky to have married Michele

If he has married this Asian European lady he would never been president as he would not have gotten majority of black votes.
So he owes a lot to Michelle.

Stella Jager should sharrap. Does she think she is better than Michelle? How dare she say Obama only married Michelle because he needed to marry a black woman for his presidential ambition? Unchained mad dog.

Well, good for her. She rejected Obama and she should be happy with her decision.

Its annoying how another person is allowed to write your story... Amd iy cant be all real because yhe only person who tell tell a story is the REAL PERSON.
You dont have access to HOW,WHY and WHEN they did things. Their thoughts personal challenges etc

Biographies (unverified) is bullshit...

This is not news. Even in the Netflix movie Barry it was made public. Barrack later figured it was better for him to find an African American woman after he was introduced to black consciousness in the streets of NY(during his Columbia Uni days) which would also solidify his political rise/ ambition in Chicago as a black politician. Some of you guys don't read and only wait for blog updates so how would you know these things? IG generation with no substance or brain. I bet nobody on this blog don read Barrack's book Dreams from my father. Block heads

The biography was probably written from the perspective of a white hater.They just want to tarnish the perfect marriage image he has with michelle.The should just leave him alone,he is no longer in power.The made his tenure difficult for him, now as an ex- president the wont let him retire in peace.The are after his kids, just looking for any dirt to smear their image as a family.Next the will tell us he beat his wife just to feed to stereotypes that black marriages dont work.The should let them be.They made us (as black people)proud by how the conducted themselves throughout their tenure.I wont be surprised if trump is indirectly behind this biography.
