Around 10 a.m. on Wednesday, prospective juror Barack Obama climbed out of a black SUV in a secure parking garage underneath the Daley Center as a news helicopter hovered overhead. Accompanied by his Secret Service detail, Obama rode a private elevator reserved for judges to the 17th floor, where he was greeted by Chief Judge Timothy Evans.

Inside the room, 168 other would-be jurors were in full swoon, applauding the former president as he shook hands and signed copies of his book they had brought along.

Obama was not chosen to sit on a jury, but he sure made the jury selection process thrilling! Watch the video clip below.
