ran 3.8 miles
"This will be my last political campaign no matter what,"..."I've got nothing else to run for,"..."You start feeling a little nostalgic. You start thinking about some of your first campaigns. I think about all the places I used to travel in Illinois..."


Illinois...let's look back on Illinois. Our president ran every other name running for the Illinois state senate seat against him off the ticket with bare-knuckle, back-alley tactics, which were in direct opposition with everything he stood for leading up to his run. He obliterated his competition during the electoral process to a point that he eventually won his seat unopposed. That's the American way, right...being a bully, an insolent child to get your way at any cost?


"In his first race for office, seeking a state Senate seat on Chicago's gritty South Side in 1996, Obama effectively used election rules to eliminate his Democratic competition.

As a community organizer, he had helped register thousands of voters. But when it came time to run for office, he employed Chicago rules to invalidate the voting petition signatures of three of his challengers.

The move denied each of them, including incumbent Alice Palmer, a longtime Chicago activist, a place on the ballot. It cleared the way for Obama to run unopposed on the Democratic ticket in a heavily Democrat district."

(2008, CNN Politics, Drew Griffin and Kathleen Johnston)


"That was Chicago politics. Knock out your opposition, challenge their petitions, destroy your enemy, right? It is how Barack Obama destroyed his enemies back in 1996 that conflicts with his message today. He may have gotten his start registering thousands of voters. But in that first race, he made sure voters had just one choice."

(2008, Chicago Tribune, John Kass)


And here is the record Barack Obama is running on. It requires little explanation.

2,080 miles from Lafayette, LA to Washington D.C. and back + 43.6

Here is what happened one year ago on Day316.
