I believe the most compelling arguments for Obama come from himself in his two books. From reading his books I have come to believe that he is a genuine, thoughtful person who cares deeply about all people. He has a keen understanding of America historically, politically, legally, economically, constitutionally and socially. He knows where we have been, where we stand and he has a hopeful vision for our future. His understanding of the issues and policies is deep and nuanced. Most importantly he can bring us back together as a country. He is a unifier. He can help America to focus on those common values and principles that we all believe in. I believe that Obama can bring us back to the point where the ties that bind us together are stronger than those that would tear us apart. He can bring us to a place where we all care about one another and what is best for the country as a whole. He can bring us to a point where we can look beyond our own self interest in order to solve the larger problems of the country and the world. He can bring us to a place where we can be proud to be Americans again. If you are interested in discussing Obama's books please visit http://www.readobama.com

Product Overview

Senator Obama has written a book of transforming power. Only by returning to the principles that gave birth to the Constitution, he says, can Americans repair a political process that is broken, and restore to working order a government that has fallen dangerously out of touch with millions of ordinary Americans.

Praise
"While exhibiting his leadership attributes, life experiences and personal qualities largely in anecdotal form, this book also displays reasonably wide and thoughtful, if occasionally predictable, responses to domestic controversies and underscores that in his brief time as the junior senator from Illinois, he has been exposed to conflicts in the Middle East, the former Soviet Union and elsewhere."
"True to his roots as a former lecturer in Constitutional law at the University of Chicago, Obama's writing is academic and intellectual enough to further discourse on some of the most complicated policy issues of the day without becoming too didactic and dispassionate. Yet his observations from the halls of Congress to the cornfields of Illinois are full of enough Kennedyesque idealism and enthusiasm that he never loses the common touch."
From the Publisher

First Line On most days, I enter the Capitol through the basement.
Editors Note The junior U.S. senator from Illinois speaks out to all Americans on how to transform U.S. politics, calling for a return to America's original ideals and revealing how they can be adapted to such controversial issues as globalization, the function of religion in public life, and the struggle to bring people together in a nation torn by differences.
