But one former North Carolinian got close to Obama: Reggie Love.
The former Duke University football and basketball player has accompanied Obama on his travels, according to a deputy press secretary for his campaign, although she said an attendee’s description of him as a “bodyguard” was inaccurate.
Love also attended Obama’s fundraiser at the home of investor Steve Lerner. Apparently, the long-rumored rule about Dukies not going to Chapel Hill does not apply to former players.
Here is a picture of Obama’s new BFF Reggie Love with some charming prankster’s testicles drawing near to his face. That’s really all.
