Barack Hussein Obama II (pronounced /bəˈrɑːk hʊˈseɪn oʊˈbɑːmə/; born August 4, 1961) is the President-elect[1][2][3] of the United States of America and the junior United States Senator from Illinois. His inauguration into office as the forty-fourth President of the United States is scheduled for January 20, 2009. Obama is the first African American to be elected President of the United States,[4][5][6] and was the first to be nominated for President by a major political party.[7] Obama is also the first candidate born in Hawaii to have been nominated and subsequently elected president.[8]

He taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. Following an unsuccessful bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000, he announced his campaign for the U.S. Senate in January 2003.

He also made official trips to Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. During the 110th Congress, he helped create legislation regarding lobbying and electoral fraud, climate change, nuclear terrorism, and care for returned U.S. military personnel.

Obama announced his presidential campaign in February 2007, and was formally nominated at the 2008 Democratic National Convention with Delaware senator Joe Biden as his running mate. In the 2008 United States Presidential election he won, In a historical day, 53% of the popular vote, and 349 electoral votes to rival John McCain’s 46% of the popular vote and 173 electoral votes (with 15 electoral votes belonging to North Carolina as yet unclaimed).[
