President Barack Obama

Talk about a great political comeback! Many fail to remember that in 2000 President Obama, a state senator in Illinois at the time, "lost a U.S. Senate Democratic primary for the U.S. House of Representatives by a margin of 2 to 1." The new move that made him? Riding the early opposition bandwagon to the United States war in Iraq. The rest was pretty much history!   (Photo: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
