Becoming Barack

In 1993, a 32-year-old Barack Obama was midway through writing Dreams of My Father when aspiring filmmaker Zeke Gonzalez interviewed him for a documentary on black role models.  Did he know he would some day be president? “My general view about politics and running for office is that if you end up being fortunate enough to have the opportunity to serve, it is because you got a track record of service in the community and I think right now, I am still building up that track record. … I might think about it, but that time is certainly in the future.”
