Barack & White

Going against all the hype surrounding the Junior Senator from Illinois, Barack Obama says he will not seek the White House in the next election. Despite the notable following the first term Senator gained due to his emergence in Illinois and his speech at the Democratic convention Obama remains poised and humble and is on record as saying "I'm not running for national office. I am here to be sworn in as the United States senator from the state of Illinois. I will not be running for president in '08.", which while slightly disappointing to fans does make sense. In 2008 were he to run he would only have a single term at a national level, and would at 47 still be a fairly young man as presidents go.
