The Obama Girls as Political Collateral

I was thinking just this past weekend about how the Obama girls (not the “Obama Girl,” but Malia and Sasha Obama) had managed to stay out of the public light for the past three years, and how pleased I was that the press had allowed them to keep their lives as private as reasonably possible.

Well, turns out that 2012 is an election year, and the Obamas make a nice looking family.  Not willing to waste a good picture, it’s the Obama re-election campaign, not the press, today parading around Sasha and Malia  in the election materials including web banner ads and the front page of the campaign’s website.

I guess, for Barack and Michelle, the proper political photo op is more valuable than their little girls’ privacy.
