    He certainly wasn't the richest Senator, but he had a couple million in the bank prior to getting elected.  (Poorest Senator was, of course, Biden.) Michelle also made a very good living as a lawyer.  They paid off their student loans and then wisely saved up enough for a nice house, living frugally, until Dreams of My Father hit the bestseller list.

    I'm sure Obama still gets the occasional royalty check as well.
