Who is Barack Obama? A short biography at

Barack Obama was catapulted into public consciousness with a single speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention:

"Now even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us, the spin masters and negative ad peddlers who embrace the politics of anything goes. Well, I say to them tonight, there's not a liberal America and a conservative America; there's the United States of America.

"There's not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there's the United States of America.

"The pundits, the pundits like to slice and dice our country into red states and blue States: red states for Republicans, blue States for Democrats. But I've got news for them, too. We worship an awesome God in the blue states, and we don't like federal agents poking around our libraries in the red states.

"We coach little league in the blue states and, yes, we've got some gay friends in the red states.

"There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq, and there are patriots who supported the war in Iraq.

"We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.

"In the end, that's what this election is about. Do we participate in a politics of cynicism, or do we participate in a politics of hope?"

Posted in full on, the speech would evolve into the central theme behind Obama's own presidential campaign in 2008. "A politics based on hope."

Barack Obama now serves as the 44th President of the United States. The first African American to hold the office, he was inaugurated on January 20, 2009.
