Obama performs jury duty

Former President Barack Obama reported for jury duty in Chicago today, fulfilling his role as both citizen and celebrity.


Cell phone video from a fellow juror shows a relaxed Obama signing in at the Richard J. Daley Center and then shaking hands with those seated around the jury pool waiting room.

The former president even signed one of his books that a fellow juror had brought.


“Did you know I was coming?” Obama asked the person with a smile. “You brought a book and everything!”


Obama was briefly selected for a jury panel but was sent home after 12 p.m. when Circuit Court Judge Tim Evans dismissed the group.
