Barack Obama made history in 2009 when he became the first African-American President. Born to an African father and American mother, he was elected on the heels of an impressive grass-roots campaign. His popularity rose, in part, because he promised to change government and many of the entrenched government programs. Once in the White House, he and his attractive young family became the focus of continual public attention.
