From Honolulu to the White House
Born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1961, Barack Obama graduated from Columbia University in 1988 and subsequently studied at Harvard Law School, served as a civil rights attorney and taught at the University of Chicago Law School. His path to the White House began in 1998 when he was chosen to represent the Illinois Senate's 13th district for the first of three terms. In 2004 he successfully ran for the U.S. Senate and four years later was chosen ahead of Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Presidential candidate. After defeating Republican John McCain to take over from George W. Bush and become the 44th President of the United States, Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize laureate and introduced landmark bills relating to affordable care, the military and tax relief. He was reelected for a second term in 2012 ahead of Republican opponent Mitt Romney and later advocated for same-sex equality, gun control and climate change action. He retired from office in 2017 having established a reputation as one of the most popular presidents of the modern era. You can both buy and sell Barack Obama tickets on StubHub.
