    Yes. He was on the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, which distributed tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars to groups possibly directed by terrorist William Ayers (he was on the Collaborative board- overseeing what Obama was doing) This was supposed to be given to improve the Chicago public school system, but apparently CPS didn't know or didn't mind that the challenge was loosely, if at all structured, was pretty much a complete failure, and pretty much all of the money went to fund social activist groups instead of towards improving test scores etc. I believe ACORN (which I am sure you have heard of or will soon) was one of those groups. Acorn is a group that may be largely to blame for the bad loans that have essentially caused the collapse of our banking system. It is also a group that has been accused of a lot of voter fraud and has intimidated businesses by crying "RACISM" at everything.

    He was also state senator of Illinois but maybe this was just a part time job because he couldn't seem to make up his mind about things (voted PRESENT instead of YES or NO, I believe over 100 times). He is a US Senator, but really he has always just been a Presidential candidate. Did I mention book reviewer? Oh yes, he gave a wonderful review of the terrorist WIlliam Ayers book. Not sure how he did this, since he really doesn't KNOW him- nudge nudge, wink wink:)

    He was a community organizer, an Illinois state Senator, and a US Senator

    I think he may have worked as a lawyer once

    You are just making yourself look like an idiot, because I think most people agree that being a lawyer, a law professor, a state senator, and a US senator is a pretty good resume.

    Would some one who never held a job, be running for president?

    He's held many jobs, including those with a Harvard Law Degree.

    He is currently a senator.

    Obviously...

    Yes. He worked, as we all know, as a community organizer. He also worked as an attorney with a private law firm, and as a teacher at University of Chicago Law School.

    Contrast that with McCain, who has held only one private-sector job in his life, a job given to him by his rich second father-in-law.

    Does been a senator count as a job?

    The real question is whether Mcain has ever had a REAL job.
