This "nimble" book provides a pithy, funny, almost schizophrenic examination of all the arguments that I can think of, pro and con, on the subject of Senator Barack Obama's suitability for the office of President. My promise to you is that no matter how much you already know about Obama, this book will present you with new information and new perspectives. This is a "livin ...more
