Best Answer

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

Barack Obama served as an Illinois state senator for three terms. According to newspaper reports, his constituents found him to be very available, and committed to helping his district. He then served as a U.S. senator from 2004 to 2008.

How many days has Barack Obama served?

It is unclear what you are asking. If you are asking about how long he served in congress, he served nearly 12 years as an Illinois state senator, and then 4 years as a U.S. senator. Given 365 days in a year, we may say his congressional service was about 4,380 days in the state legislature and then 1,460 days in the senate, for a total of 5,840 days (the numbers may be off, given a couple of extra days during leap years). As President, he was elected in November 2008 and took office in January 2009. In January 2013, he will begin his second 4-year term.

How many days was Obama a senator before he declared running for president?

According to an email from right wing blogger Cheri Jacobus: He logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. According to 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.
