Numbers: Education ranks 5th for Obama
The New York Times today looks back at Barack Obama's work in the Illinois legislature and ranks more than 800 bills he sponsored by category. Based on the 62 education bills he sponsored, education could be viewed as fifth priority in his legislative work, coming in behind health care (233 bills), poverty (125), crime (122) and economic issues (97). Unfortunately, there's not a breakdown of the nature of the education bills Obama sponsored in Illinois.
