In little more than four years, Barack Obama rose from political obscurity to become the forty-fourth president of the United States. His election win in November 2008 was a moment of enormous historical magnitude, greeted with an outpouring of emotion in America and around the world. But on taking office, Obama also faced a situation of unparalleled crisis, with a financial meltdown threatening the global economy and his country enmeshed in two wars.
