Former US President Barack Obama delighted Chicago citizens by greeting them when he visited the place for his jury duty. Obama currently lives in Washington DC but still owns a house in Chicago. As soon as he entered, onlookers rushed for a peek of Obama as he checked in. The 56-year-old greeted his fellow jurors and had a brief chat with them.

Showing a glimpse of his generous side, the ex-president spoke to the visitors, signed autographs and shook hands with every person in the room. With a Harvard Law School degree and his eight-year experience as commander-in-chief, Obama was quite a preferable candidate for jury duty, but he wasn’t selected.

Back in 2015, former President George W Bush also reported for jury duty at a Dallas courthouse, and in 2003, Bill Clinton answered the call in New York. However, neither of them were selected.
