I've said it before...and I'll say it again - Barack Obama is a fascinating person.
I'm currently reading his book "The Audacity of Hope" and all I can say is ... Wow!
And now, he's taking the first step in his presidential bid.
WASHINGTON - Democratic Sen. Barack Obama (news, bio, voting record) said Tuesday he is taking the initial step in a presidential bid that could make him the nation's first black to occupy the White House.
Obama announced on his Web site, http://us.rd.yahoo.com/dailynews/ap/ap_on_el_pr/storytext/obama2008/21594900/SIG=10sclkvnl/*http://www.barackobama.com, that he was filing a presidential exploratory committee. He said he would announce more about his plans in his home state of Illinois on Feb. 10.
