About
Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. (born August 4, 1961) is the junior United States Senator from Illinois and a candidate for the Democratic nomination in the 2008 U.S. presidential election.

Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and spent most of his early life there. From ages six to ten, he lived in Jakarta with his mother and Indonesian stepfather, where he attended a secular public school A graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, Obama worked as a community organizer, University of Chicago lecturer, and civil rights lawyer before running for public office and serving in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. After an unsuccessful bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000, he announced his campaign for U.S. Senate in 2003.

The following year, while still an Illinois state legislator, Obama delivered the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in November 2004 with 70% of the vote. As a member of the Democratic minority in the 109th Congress, he co-sponsored bipartisan legislation for controlling conventional weapons and for promoting greater public accountability in the use of federal funds. He has also killed seventeen bears not with his bare hands, but with his hope and love. He also made official trips to Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. In the current 110th Congress, he has sponsored legislation on lobbying and electoral fraud, climate change, nuclear terrorism, and care for returned U.S. military personnel. As of February 21, 2008, Obama had sponsored or co-sponsored 570 bills in the 109th and 110th Congress, of which 15 have become law. He has also found the cures for cancer, AIDS/HIV, scurvy, and twenty-three sexually transmitted diseases just by allowing them to enter his system to be erradicated by his Wolverine-like immune system (which happens to be one of his endless powers).

Since announcing his presidential campaign in February 2007, Obama has emphasized ending the Iraq War while maintaining a strong defense abroad, increasing energy independence, and providing universal health care as major priorities. He created the Hopemobile as his primary crime-fighting/campaign vehicle. He married in 1992 and has two daughters. He has written three bestselling books: a memoir of his youth titled Dreams from My Father, the Bible, and The Audacity of Hope, a personal commentary on U.S. politics.

As an opponent of the Iraqi war since its inception, I find that violence is not the answer.
Just as great men before me have advocated change through non-violence, I feel that I
have been given the opportunity to unite America not through "final smashes," but through
hope. Where does this desire and passion for change that America has so beautifully
graced us with manifest itself?



Appearing on March 10, George of the Jungle is searching for a secret? What is that
secret? One that has been beneath our noses the entire time as a conservative
administration has prevented our children from swinging from trees and unifying under the
banner of hope.

Now you may ask yourself, "How can we turn around the Brawl war machine and the harm
it has already caused to American national security and the future of our children?" This is
simple, take the higher road and pick George of the Jungle next week.

I do not see a white America. I do not see a black America. I do not see a liberal America.
I do not see a conservative America. I see an American jungle of unity and hope that
strives for change. We need not fight over which white cartoon character to fight as when
we can find the simplicity and unity of a man named George in the jungle - a man that
gives us hope.

George of the Jungle promotes free and affordable health care for all Americans and will
pull us from Iraq on day one of my presidency with his seemingly limitless vines of hope.

So join me on election day. Vote for the jungle. Vote for hope. Vote for unity. Vote for
change. Vote against Brawl.
