President-elect Barack Obama, The LA Days

Photo by Lisa Jack

TIME Magazine named Barack Obama its Man Person of the Year today for 2008, and included with its coverage a photo essay titled "Obama: The College Years," a collection of very cool photos of the president-elect back in 1980, when he was a freshman at Occidental College here in Los Angeles.

The photos, shot by fellow student and aspiring photographer Lisa Jack, reveal "a playful side of the President-elect," says TIME. The photo above is one of those.

Just a little more than a month to go before we can drop the "elect" from that title and simply call him "Mr. President."
