Barack Obama is not your typical politician - he's a statesman. I challenge you to read this book & tell me with a straight face that Bush could manage something this eloquent &, well, hopeful. I'm under no dilusions that GWB is as stupid as he comes off - I mean, I know he's no Rhodes Scholar (unlike Barack, by the way, who was elected President of the Harvard Review), but Bush plays the role of Village Idiot on purpose because it allows him to get away with more. He's devious.

But wait, I should talk about Barack, not W. Barack's book is excellent. The BRILLIANT thing about him is that he knows how to play the endlessly annoying politics "game," which is why you should keep your eye on him in the election next year. Heck, vote for him! He's really that great - which you'll know if you read this book.
