Barack Obama: Pragmatist learned to adapt to different worlds

CHICAGO - It was a Wednesday night ritual for Barack Obama: After a day of debating taxes, the death penalty or some other divisive issue, he'd head to a meeting of "The Committee."

Lawmakers and lobbyists, Democrats and Republicans alike, would put politics on hold and gather for ... their weekly poker game.

It was a chance for Obama, then an Illinois state lawmaker, to socialize over cards and cigars (or, in his case, cigarettes). It also was a way for this son of an African goat herder, this Harvard-educated lawyer, author and professor to show he could be just one of the guys.
