From teaching to organizing voter registration drives, Barak Obama has been active in the political and legal landscape. During his seven years in the Illinois state Senate, working families have been his top priority. In February 2007, Obama announced his decision to run in the 2008 Presidential election, but he was making news long before. After he was the first African-American editor of the Harvard Law Review, he became a best-selling author and the third African-American ever elected to Senate. With the chance to become the first African-American President, Obama continues to blur racial lines and boundaries.
