Obama-Edward Said: Quick Question

This photo from 1998 has been circulating on the Internet for a while now, but nobody seems to ask a very basic question: Why was a relatively obscure State Senator seated next to the high and mightily Keynote speaker, Edward Said, at this May 1998 Arab community dinner in Chicago? These types of events ordinarily do not have random seating. Someone obviously thought it important to seat Obama next to the Palestinian radical and guest of honor. Why?

  1. Well, Obama was no slouch at this point - he was probably the only President of the Harvard Law Review in attendance. That's one thing. Also, I believe Obama had been in one of Said's classes as an undergrad at Columbia. That's another possibility.
