Barack Obama and Me

Todd Spivak writes an excellent editorial giving his personal account of Barack Obama from a perspective of a journalist just starting out back in 2000. No one really knew who Barack Obama was. Spivak worked half of Obama’s tenure in the same District 13 area of Chicago as a reporter.

Spivak relates his story as a Forrest Gump moment and regrets not having a tape recorder handy. …history was being made.
