Seeking to become just the 3rd African-American U.S. senator in a century, Barack Obama knows he has a long, hard fight ahead. But, with national attention pouring in, Obama is shining in the spotlight. Obama's early opposition to the war in Iraq drew the attention of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.
