Walk in the footsteps of a young, would-be president.

I left for Chicago on a foggy DC morning. Not looking forward to the cold, and traveling alone, I had to make a list of things to occupy my restless, wander-lusting spirit during my stint in the windy city.

Number one: see a show at the famous Second City improv theater. Two: eat deep dish Chicago style pizza till I burst. Three: walk in the footsteps of a young couple poised to one day assume the highest office in the land.

While working an exhausting senate campaign for a few weeks, I made the time to catch a Second City show and grab a box of Giordano’s deep dish pizza– which by the way was completely worth risking bathing-suit season for.

Then on a whim, a former (then Senator) Obama staffer offered to give me a tour of Barack's old stomping grounds. I of course obliged. Who wouldn't want to walk the path of this young couple, who years later gracefully won over the American people two terms in a row.  Now that's priceless.

From their first home to Barack's favorite restaurant, take a glimpse into the beginning of President Barack and First Lady Michele Obama’s extraordinary journey to the White House.
