Over at Patterico's Pontifications, WLS notes that eight years as president would be the longest time that Barack Obama has held the same full-time job.
After Columbia he spent a year in a New York business, a year in a NY non-profit, and then headed to Chicago where he spent 3 years as a “community organizer.”
Then he went to law school, returning to Chicago in 1991. He did some community organizing, then was an associate for a Chicago law firm for three years. After that he was to the State Senate - a part time legislature — and served as a lecturer at the Univ. of Chicago law school — another part-time gig. He was involved in a variety of community organizations during this period.
His Senate seat is the first full-time job he has had since his law firm days — but he’s only been in that job for 4 years.
So, serving 8 years at POTUS would be his longest stint in any position of full-time employment in his life.
“If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.”
