Who is Barack Obama?


I just got curious who this Obama guy is so I searched and found this....

He was elected to the Illinois state senate in 1996. Four years later, he made an unsuccessful run for the U.S. House of Representatives. Obama won reelection to the state senate in 2002, running unopposed. As early as 2002, he was a critic of the proposed Iraq War, declaring in a television interview that he would have voted against the Iraq Resolution.[3] In 2004 he ran for an open seat in the U.S. Senate. Midway through the campaign, Obama delivered the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention and became a nationally known political figure. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in November 2004 with a landslide 70% of the vote.[4]

I actually think Obama does have a good shot at the presidency. He's already popular. In another year, he'll be even more well-known, and that will give him a shot.

I believe our nation's next president will be a democrat simply on the basis that there's so much negativity directed toward the Republican party right now. And, I think that gives Obama a very good chance.

well hm looking for contact info for you but could only find this! So here I go!

Since your profile says you like basketball! Wanted to give you a heads up on the new video Senator Bill Bradley just uploaded to youtube.

An interesting look at the impact sports can have on people and building communities. Really terrifying realization about the life of a pro basketball player towards the end.
