Barack Obama Circa 1995

Here is a piece about Barack from the left-leaning Chicago Reader, first published in December of 1995.  Of particular interest:

Another strong supporter of Obama's work--as an organizer, as a lawyer, and now as a candidate--is Madeline Talbott, lead organizer of the feisty ACORN community organization, a group that's a thorn in the side of most elected officials. "I can't repeat what most ACORN members think and say about politicians. But Barack has proven himself among our members. . . . .

Obama continues his organizing work largely through classes for future leaders identified by ACORN and the Centers for New Horizons on the south side.

For anyone not fully convinced of ACORN's radical agenda, check out its "People's Platform" (being criticized, where linked, by yet another radical group).
