Michelle Obama was recently asked to the Marine Corps Ball, proving that Marines are indeed lusting after someone other than Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, and she said yes!
And judging from the above photo, it's fairly easy to see why (sure, maybe her reasons were different but hey, she has eyes!) Via Politico:
20 year old Marine Lance Corporal Aaron Leeks from Frederick, Maryland has asked First Lady Michelle Obama to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball next November. "With your husband's permission of course," said Leeks.
The first lady responded, "I'd love to" and brought an aide over to get his information. The first lady met Leeks at a Toys-for-Tots event at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling located in southeast Washington, DC.
Okay, I'm all for fidelity but goodness if that isn't the type of super polite "Can I borrow you from your husband proposal?" that would make a girl non-cheating-swoon for at least 5 minutes.
Press Secretary Jay Carney said he couldn't confirm that Mrs. Obama could attend but that, "The first lady's commitment to military families is very strong indeed. So I'm sure she was flattered by the invitation."
A commitment that's probably even easier to keep when the invitation comes from a polite would-be leading man in a movie I'm currently writing in my head.
