1. Obama was born on Aug. 4, 1961, in Honolulu. His first name, Barack, means "blessed" in Swahili and was also his Kenyan father's name.

2. He says he hasn't liked ice cream since working at Baskin-Robbins as a teenager.

3. His childhood nickname was Barry.

4. Obama is the third African-American senator since Reconstruction.

5. He married Michelle Robinson, also a Harvard Law School graduate, who supervised him while he was working as a summer associate in a Chicago law firm. They have two daughters, Malia and Sasha.

6. As an Illinois state senator, he sponsored a bill to require the police to videotape interrogations in capital crime cases. Illinois was the first state to do this.

7. A school in his father's hometown near Lake Victoria in Kenya has been renamed the Senator Barack Obama Secondary School.

8. He loves playing Scrabble.

9. Obama and his wife bought a house on Chicago's South Side in June 2005 for $1.65 million. It has four fireplaces.

10. His heroes are Martin Luther King Jr., Mohandas Gandhi, Pablo Picasso, and John Coltrane.

Houses are nice but the area is not as ritzy as you might think. Hyde Park/Kenwood area of Chicago.

Barack lives only blocks from my home.
Louis Farrakhan lives exactly 6 blocks away.(Farrakhan has serious security cameras all around his home and a 24 hour 7 day a week FOI security car always outside.)

"X"....It is highly rumored that Farrakan was "Deeply Involved" in Malcoms death.

I always thought the Panthers were pretty cool. I think I'd look good in a black leather coat, myself.

How do you join the Panthers? Can you do it and be white at the same time? I always wondered that.
