A simple fact of Obama

November 28, 2008


Government Name: Barack Obama

Hometown: Honolulu, Hawaii

Fun Fact: When Obama was a child, he resided in Indonesia with his mother and stepfather, as well as Hawaii, where he finished high school, before attending Columbia University in the United States.

Claim to Fame: In 2004, Obama, the only African-American serving in the U.S. Senate at the time, raised eyebrows at the Democratic Nation Convention in Boston, Mass., where, afterwards, everyone from Oprah Winfrey to critics suggested he run for President of the United States (Obama entered the presidential race in 2007)
