Obama has been very busy. In addition to running for Joe Biden, the former president also released a memoir “The Promised Land”, which is set to expire on November 17.

In 2009, when the H1N1 virus (commonly referred to as swine flu) evolved into a global pandemic, Obama convened a team to help assess the United States’ preparedness for such an event. He recommended to participate in the process but to follow the leadership of medical experts.
He recalled, “When I worked in the Senate, I knew much more about the H1N1 virus than in the past.” “What I know scared me.”
