    Barack Obama's neighborhood newspaper, the Hyde Park Herald, has a longstanding tradition of opening its pages to elected officials-from Chicago aldermen to state legislators to U.S. senators. Obama himself, as a state senator, wrote more than 40 columns for the Herald, under the title "Springfield Report," between 1996 and 2004. Read in isolation, Obama's columns from the state capital tell us little. Placed in the context of political and policy battles then raging in Illinois, however, the young legislator's dispatches powerfully illuminate his political beliefs. Even more revealing are hundreds of articles chronicling Obama's early political and legislative activities in the pages not only of the Hyde Park Herald, but also of another South Side fixture, the Chicago Defender.

    WHO IS THIS MAN???

    Troll, Bush is gone out Cya, While Obama wants to be the next president. Yet all you can do is post a completely non related link about Bush.

    Didn't your mommy ever tell you 2 wrongs do not make a right? What are you implying by that link, that because we elected Bush despite his background(and we all know how that worked out) that we should give Obama a pass on his own background?

    wow sound logic.

    Very few people know about Bush's background. I just thought it was interesting.
