An interview of President Barack Obama in 1993 when he was only two years out of law school surfaced online recently for a documentary released last week on DVD called Becoming Barack.

The interview was made when the now president of the United States was beginning to build his track record.

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, Obama said in the 1993 interview.
