There he is, that's 17-year-old Barry Obama...at his senior prom in Hawaii...."</strong><br /><br />Hall provided another important detail to viewers: "President Obama's classmate Kelli Alman released the pictures to Time, complete with the President's yearbook inscription to her, calling her, quote, 'extremely sweet and foxy.'"
