Best Answer

Barack Obama did not serve as a US Representative (a member of the House of Representatives). He was first elected as a state senator in Illinois in 1996, and after three terms, he was elected as a member of the US Senate; he served as a senator until he decided to run for president. That said, as president, Barack Obama certainly does represent the United States. But prior to becoming the president, he was a member of the Senate, not the House of Representatives.
