Barack Obama

Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States and the nation's first African American President. He was formerly the junior United States Senator from Illinois, serving from January 2005 to November 2008, and before that served three terms in the Illinois Senate, from 1997 to 2004. Obama resigned from the U.S. Senate after his election to the presidency. He closely campaigned in the 2008 Democratic Party presidential primaries against Hillary Rodham Clinton, and ultimately won his party's nomination, going on to win the Presidential Election against Republican candidate John McCain.

As President, Obama has vowed to put an end to the Iraq War and reform both the health care system and immigration laws. He also wants to improve schools in the United States and meet the country's energy needs.




Obama is the son of a Kenyan father and a mother from Kansas, and he spent his childhood in Hawaii. He graduated from Columbia University in 1983, and he put law school on hold to do community service work with a church-based group in Chicago. In 1991, he earned his law degree from Harvard, where he was the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He now lives in Washington, D.C., with his wife, Michelle, and their two daughters, Malia and Sasha.
