BRONX OBAMA

Louis Ortiz never dreamed he would one day make a living as the President of the United States. A single father from the Bronx, Ortiz had just been laid off from his job in 2008 when people noticed that he bore an uncanny resemblance to the new presidential hopeful Barack Obama. With Obama's victory, Ortiz transformed himself into a professional lookalike, joined a motley group of political impersonators and began to chase an unlikely version of the American dream. – AP
