A little Herbalife red-herring
Remember back then. George Bush was President yet to win his second term. Barrack Obama was a Illinois State Senator and you needed to be a political junkie to have heard of him. Almost nobody could have identified his family in a photo.

The photo is there - you can go check it.
It occupied my mind for a while - but it is alas not the First Family much as I wish it were. It is just one of life's little coincidences.
Then of course I may be wrong. Been wrong before. Appearances might not be deceiving...
