In November 2008, Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States and the first African American President in United States history.
Obama was born to a black, Kenyan father and white mother. He grew up in Hawaii. As an undergraduate, he attended Columbia University. After graduating, Obama became a community activist in New York City. Later, he attended Harvard Law School.
Entering the office amid a financial crisis and two lengthy wars, Obama promised change throughout his presidential campaign. He made measures to improve the economy through a stimulus package, tax cuts, and the passage of health care reform. He made efforts to pull back troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, and pledged a date that all troops would be returning home. He made great strides for the United States when CIA Operatives killed terrorist Osama Bin Laden in Spring 2011. He will run for re-election in the 2012 election.
