    •  I hope Malia doesn't have to wait til she's 18 to (0+ / 0-)

      date.  She's 14 now, and it seems unfair to make her wait four more years.  Sasha might not start until after leaving, but she'll be 15 in 2016, almost 16 by the time they move out.  She might well have a boyfriend by then, too.

        You can ask the Secret Service to do a fade while you kiss a guy good night (it was 1950).  She just waited until Harry got out of office and she was away from home.

        On the other hand Lucy Baines Johnson (LBJ's youngest daughter and a hottie as a teenager [her Secret Service code name was Venus]) somehow or other managed to land one of the military aides--inside the White House.

          I hope they have as normal an adolescence as possible under the circumstances.

          •  Chelsea escaped to Stanford (0+ / 0-)

            She essentially did no fooling around until she didn't have a Secret Service bodyguard.  She was 20 when that happened.  I remember the comments a year or so later that she looked more womanly.  She became sophisticated looking while at Oxford later on.
