This contest is fueled by the following news: This week Senator Barack Obama has officially started his campaign for the presidential elections in 2008. Relatively new to politics, the Illinois senator is turning his inexperience into appeal to voters looking for change. In his opening campaign statement, Obama said the country is ready for a change to a new kind of politics. He accused the White House of leading a too biased politics incapable of making common sense decisions due to being corrupt with power, money, and personal influences. "That is the first thing we have to change," said Obama. The senator filed the paperwork forming his presidential committee that gives his the right to raise money and organize a presidential campaign. Obama's smart talking, young age, unique ethnic background and opposition to the Iraq war make him a good contender to even candidates like Hillary Clinton with solid political backgrounds. Barack Obama quickly earned the endorsements of many celebrities including TV diva Oprah Winfrey, actors Matt Damon and Edward Norton, and investor Warren Buffett. In 2004 Obama, then a freshman senator, said he had no plans for presidency, but closer to 2006 his statements changed to leave this option open. Obama said that only after he traveled the country a lot this year and had discussions with many people he changed his mind and decided to run for the President of the United States in 2008. Senator Hillary Clinton is about to announce her presidential campaign for 2008 within days, and so far there has not been a reaction from the Clinton camp on Obama's bid for the presidency. Obama in history (updated as of July 2010): In Jakarta, Obama Jr. studied in one of the government schools from the age of 6 till he was 10 yrs old. After that, Obama Jr. returned back to Honolulu, where he lived with his maternal grandparents till the completion of his prestigious private school "Punahuo" in 1979. Obama Jr. described memoirs of his childhood in the book "Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance". He admitted that during his school years, he smoked marijuana, cocaine and alcohol, about which Obama Jr. told the voters at the Civil Forum of the Presidential Campaign on August 16, 2008 and characterized it as the lowest moral degradation. After schooling, Barack Obama attended Western College in Los Angeles for two years and was transferred to Columbia University, where he majored in International Relations. By the time Obama received his bachelor's degree in 1983, he already worked in for the Business International Corporation and New York Public Interest Research Group. In 1985, Obama relocated to Chicago and started working as a community organizer in problematic areas of the city. In 1988, Obama took attended Harvard Law School, where in 1990, he became the first African American Editor of the "Harvard Law Review", in the history of Harvard Law School. The Senator of Illinois: In 1996, Barack Obama was elected to the Senate of the State of Illinois. Barack Obama served as Senator from 1997 to 2004, and represented the US Democratic Party: Twice he was reelected in 1998 and 2002. As senator, Obama worked both with Democrats as well as with Republicans: along with representatives of both parties, Obama worked on programs to support the poor families through the reduction of taxes; Obama promoted the development of preschool education and supported measures on toughening over the working of investigating bodies. In 2000, Barack Obama made an attempt to stand in the elections for the House of Representatives of the USA but lost the primaries to active black congressman Bobby Rush. In 2004, Obama entered the race for one of the posts from Illinois in the US Senate. Barack Obama won convincingly over six opponents during the primaries. The Senator in Washington (2005 – 2008): Barack Obama was sworn in as a US Senator on January 4, 2005 thus becoming the 5th African American Senator of the US in the history of the country. In the end of August, 2005, within the frameworks of program "Nunn–Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction", Barack Obama visited Russia for inspecting the nuclear facilities of the Russian Federation along with Senator-Republican Richard Lugar; during the visit, the Senators were detained in "Bolshoye Savino" airport, Perm, for three hours because of the refusal "to fulfill requirements of the frontier guards" on examination of the plane, which had diplomatic privileges. Later, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Russia expressed regrets "in connection with the misunderstanding and the inconveniences caused to the Senators". In his book, Obama quoted this incident as one of the moments during his travel, "which reminded him of the days of the cold war". Senator Barack Obama was invited many times to the White House by the President George Bush. The nonparty edition "Congressional Quarterly" characterized Barack Obama as a "loyal democrat" on the basis of analysis of all votes in the senate in the years 2005-2007; The National Journal recommended him as the "most liberal" Senator on the basis of the appraisal of elected votes during 2007.
