Following his brief stint as a college student (well his brief time in a CLASSROOM anyway) Lil' Barry spent some time in the evil capitalist sphere before moving on to stardom.

Democrats’ star speaker Van Jones fires up crowd — and emerges party “leader of the future”?
Van Jones, the former Obama Administration green czar who resigned in controversy, appears on the fast track to a political comeback — emerging as a star at this weekend’s California Democratic convention and lauded by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as a “leader of the future.” Read More at the PJ Tattler
In any case it seems assured that Barry Saetoro will be spreading his influence and much cash around for years to come. Whether onstage or behind the scenes this darling of the Leftist stage refuses to be denied his time in the sun.
