Summer Blogging

For this activity I had to find out two facts about Barack Obama.

Fact One: Barack Obama was born in Hawaii 

Fact Two: He is the 44th President of the United States Of America

(Extra) Fact Three: Barack Obama was born on the 4th of August 1961. 


  1. Good afternoon Daniel:)

    I like that you posted not two but three interesting facts about Barack Obama. Well done!

    He is a very powerful and influential politician who has served as President of the United States for almost eight years. It's hard to believe that he is going to be replaced later this year. I still remember the day that he was elected! I was living in Canada at the time and it was a huge deal. Everyone watched his inauguration on TV. They were amazed (and, in most cases, really happy) that an African American man had been elected as president. It was the first time that an African American had been elected president. It was truly a groundbreaking moment.

    As an additional (interesting) fact, did you know that Barack will most likely be replaced by a woman named Hilary Clinton? If she is elected as president this November, she would be the first ever female to be the president of the United States. It would be a huge incredible!

    We'll have to watch and see what happens over the next year...



  2. Hi Rachel
    I think it would be interesting if Hilary becomes the President! Who would you vote for? (Barack Obama or Hilary Clinton).


  3. Hmmm, that is such a good question! I would have to think very carefully about that one but I would be inclined to vote for Hilary as she has a lot of knowledge about the political world and how it works given that she lived in the White House for 8 years with her husband, Bill. I am a fan of her politics and I also really like her as a person.

    Having said that I think that Barack Obama is a man of great integrity and skill so it would have been very difficult to pick between them!

    Who would you vote for?
