An unseen interview with Barack Obama in 1993, when his political career was just beginning, has surfaced in a new documentary called "Becoming Barack."
"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 says in the 1993 interview. "And I think right now, I am still building up that track record and if it, a point comes where I think that I might do more good in a political office. I might think about it, but that time is certainly in the future."
Obama was only two years out of school at the time. He was working at a law firm, teaching at U. Chicago and working on his memoir. "It was like a little video resume," Stuart A. Goldman, the documentary's executive producer, said of the interview. "It's a very neat, compact seven questions with young Barack."
