The electoral campaign for the next president of the United States is still a hot issue until recent days, especially because one of the candidates is an Afro-American and thus grabs public’s attention, even the world, and Indonesia as well. Why? Because, apparently, Barack Obama spent his childhood in Jakarta in late 1960’s after his mother, Ann Durham, married to an Indonesian student named Lolo Soetoro, who was pursuing an MA degree in East-West Center, University of Hawaii. Then Obama was brought to his new family in Indonesia. Source.
