What has President Obama achieved once he was elected to any political office?
He was elected president of the Harvard Law Review, but never authored a law review article. He was elected to the Illinois state Senate and voted not present more than he voted. His name was not associated with any legislation during his short tenure.
He was elected to the United States Senate and served two years. During that tenure he spent more time running for the presidency than serving the people of Illinois.
Did I overlook something?
