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. By most accounts, he was very involved in his senatorial work from 2004 to 2007; but when he decided to run for president, he began spending less time in Washington DC and more time on his campaign.

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.
