Obama acknowledges he's considering run for president in 2008
Washington – The prospect of Barack Obama running for president now seems a little more likely.
During an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday, Obama acknowledged he's considering a run in 2008, backing off previous statements he wouldn't do so.
The Illinois Democrat says he won't make a decision until after the November elections.
Obama was largely unknown outside Illinois when he burst onto the national scene with an address at the 2004 Democratic National convention.
