    JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — The small colonial-style house Barack Obama lived in as a child has received a steady stream of visitors ahead of the U.S. presidential election, from potential buyers and journalists, to a businessman who wants to turn it into the "Sweet Home Obama Bar."
    Tata Aboe Bakar, the 78-year-old owner, is in little mood to sell, noting that the property, sequestered between a large mosque and park in an upscale neighborhood of the Indonesian capital, has been in the family since 1939.

    Much, he said, would depend on the price.

    The two-bedroom pavilion Obama lived in — initially built as a guesthouse — would be sold with the main, sprawling residence next door and the 12,900 sq. foot plot of land. Together, they have an estimated market value of $3 million.
