Barack Obama

Facts you might not know… : 

Facts you might not know… He was known as "O'Bomber" at high school for his skill at basketball. He won a Grammy in 2006 for the audio version of his memoir, Dreams From My Father. His desk in his Senate office once belonged to Robert Kennedy. He keeps on his desk a carving of a wooden hand holding an egg, a Kenyan symbol of the fragility of life.

2004 : 

2004 I stand before you as someone who is not opposed to war in all circumstances. The Civil War was one of the bloodiest in history, and yet it was only through the crucible of the sword, the sacrifice of multitudes, that we could begin to perfect this union and drive the scourge of slavery from our soil. I don't oppose all wars. My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbour was bombed, fought in Patton's army. He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of democracy that triumphed over evil. I don't oppose all wars.

Info Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, August 4, 1961. He obtained early education in Jakarta, Indonesia, and Hawaii; continued education at Occidental College, Los Angeles and Cali.
