Professor Obama

The University of Chicago Law School has issued a statement acknowledging that Senator Barack Obama can also claim the title of "Professor" for his service as a Senior Lecturer from 1992 until his election to the U. S. Senate in 2004. Although not full-time or tenure-track,

Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Law School faculty and... have high-demand careers in politics or public service, which prevent full-time teaching. Several times during his 12 years as a professor in the Law School, Obama was invited to join the faculty in a full-time tenure-track position, but he declined.

Campaign staffers working on behalf of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton had questioned Senator Obama's claim to have worked as a professor at the University of Chicago.

That's great that the University of Chicago Law issued that statement. Now Hillary's evil staffers can put a sock in it! No matter what her staff does, they will never make Obama out to being a liar or dirty dealer (like Hillary).

I think that Hillary and Barack Obama are both excellent candidates. Her campaign tactics are not that different from most campaigns these days, including the Kerry campaign the last time around and her husband's campaigns. My main concern with her is making a separation from her husband and finding an appropriate role for him were she to be elected.
