768 days before he started his presidential campaign, 1416 days total.
According to an email from right wing blogger Cheri Jacobus: He logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. According to FactCheck.org: Wrong. That's not the number of days the Senate was in session. From the time Obama was sworn in on Jan. 3, 2005, until the day he announced his exploratory committee on Jan. 16, 2007, the Senate was in session 304 days, according to the Secretary of the Senate's official count. But why only count the number of days the Senate was in session? Senators work even on days when the Senate is not in session. Don't you get paid for days you go to work, even if you don't have a staff meeting that day? And why stop counting on the day Obama formed his exploratory committee? He was still a Senator at that time. Don't you get paid for days you go to work, even if you are thinking about getting another job at the time? The actual number of days that Obama was a Senator is from January 3, 2005 until he was sworn in as President January 20, 2009. That's 1478 days.
Obama was sworn in as a Senator on January 4, 2005. You can do the counting yourself, but as of today (August 11, 2008) I count 3 years, 7 months, 7 days. As of today, that makes 1,318 days. Actually, this is a gross overstatement. If you consider only the number of work days in the senate from the time of his election until he formed his presidential campaign, Obama served 144 days in the senate. McCain has served just under 2,000. Actually, you undershot it... it was 1413 days :)... the answer was just on a quiz show :D
He was there for twenty seven years. And the word 'searve' is spelled 'serve.'
too many,she only got in to protect obama!
How many more days is obama in office
I believe the answer is 3 days
President Obama served in the Illinois State Senate, beginning in 1996; he was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2004, and then was elected president in 2008. Thus, he has at least sixteen years of political experience.
While he served three terms in the Illinois State Senate, Barack Obama was in the US Senate for only one term, from 2004 until he was elected president in 2008.
Barack Obama missed 314 (24%) of 1300 votes since Jan 6, 2005.
7.5 as of today
There are currently 42 black people in the house (9.5%) and only 1 black guy in the Senate (Barack Obama).
Two; Sotomayor and Kagan. With the passing of Antonin Scalia, President Obama will be able to nominate a replacement, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already said that the Senate would not hold confirmation hearings for any Obama nominee.
He was elected to the US Senate in 2004, and Senate terms are 6 years long. So, this is his first term as a US Senator. Before that he had a couple terms in the Illinois state senate.
He was a member of the Illinois Senate from January 8, 1997 - November 4, 2004: seven years.
