Christopher Andersen, who wrote “Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage,” appeared on “TMZ Live” just after excerpts from another book — “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama” — were released, saying he twice proposed to a woman before meeting Michelle.
Andersen says Obama, who had big political aspirations early on, recognized the value of marrying a black woman, although he’s quick to add the love between Barack and Michelle is real and profound.
BTW … Andersen’s book is amazing.
