68.  Senator's family rakes in nearly $1.7 mil. in 2005

Book royalties and advances brought in about $1.2 million for the senator-author. In late 2004, Obama landed a three-book deal worth $1.9 million. The first book under the contract, The Audacity of Hope: Reclaiming the American Dream, is scheduled for release in mid-October and is to focus on his political convictions and how he became the Senate's only African American.

His wife's income as an administrator at the not-for-profit University of Chicago Hospitals nearly tripled to $316,962, from $121,910.

In 2005, she was also elected to the board of directors of west suburban Westchester-based TreeHouse Foods, which calls itself the nation's largest pickle and pepper supplier. For that, she received $12,000 and $33,000 from a subsidiary.
