Obama photo evokes Kennedy moment





US President Barack Obama and Sasha Obama (L) and US President John F Kennedy with John F Kennedy Jnr (1 August 1963)

The US White House has released a photograph of President Barack Obama's daughter Sasha sneaking up on her father as he works in the Oval Office.
