Video: Evidence Obama was a master of cut throat Chicago politics

April 8, 2010 politisite 0

During the 2008 presidential campaign, I got emotionally caught up in the controversy regarding whether or not Sen. Barack Obama was ever a law school professor at the University of Chicago. In truth, he had only served as a Senior Lecturer, a non-tenure track job that did not demand any publication record. To the general public, this probably looked like a minor case of a politician fudging his resume. As a published, award-winning political scientist, however, I thought Obama’s claims demeaned the once, somewhat honorable, image of real University of Chicago Law School professors.
