    Sumi’s comment above lacks context. When the President was passing, she told him that he had inspired her to run and that she had won and now serves on Ann Arbor City Council. His congratulations followed.

    Of course, Sumi is not the only person President Barack Obama has inspired. Still, it was a special moment for her to be able to tell him.
