Barack is the first non-white President of the United States, which is considered a very big deal in race-obsessed America.
By historical standards, he’s also one of the most novice politicians to assume the presidency, having served less than a single term in the US Senate prior to his election.
The upbeat Obama was elected at a time of massive political disillusion in the United States, spawned by the disastrous presidency of George W. Bush.
He promised lots of “hope” and “change” but it remains to be seen how successful he will be.
To date, the President’s greatest successes have been the passage of massive health care reform and a variety of stimulus plans to resuscitate the lagging American economy.
He also won a Nobel Peace Prize.
