Obama makes bid for 2008
So Barack Obama has begun the process. The first black man to take steps toward running for president of the United States.
Actually Obama filed paperwork for a presidential exploratory committee. He first announced the decision on his Web site, barackobama.com.
Obama said on his Web site that he will spend a few weeks "exploring" with his committee, then announce his decision on running for president on Feb. 10 in Illinois.
Check here for how he voted on key votes.
So his chances? Take a look at my post for 10/23/06 on this blog. Lots of people would like to see a black president, but not just any black president. Obama seems to be the one.
