Interesting tidbit from the drafts. First time I’ve actually seen it written out by a media source. Make sure to note the specific words included.
From Seattle Weekly dated Dec. 24 2008: [emphasis added]
Obama’s mother, whose parents Madelyn and Stanley Dunham had moved here from Kansas a decade earlier, left Mercer Island in 1960.
But she returned to live in Seattle around 1962, after Barack was born in August 1961, leaving her husband, Kenya-born Barack Sr., and his newborn namesake in Hawaii.
She lived on Capitol Hill and enrolled at the University of Washington.
According to various news reports and Obama’s biography, when Stanley Ann returned to Hawaii after a half-year or so, she and Barack Sr. had already grown apart, and eventually split.
