Obama with Michelle cutout.jpgSome couples are so famous that they haphazardly encounter life-sized cardboard cutouts of one another when they are apart.

Here, during a visit to Central High School in Miami on March 4, President Obama poses with a cutout of the first lady. Based on the dress, this flat Michelle seems to have been produced from a photo taken at the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, where she spoke.
