The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama
The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream by Barack Obama is a book where he highlights many of his ideas on how the nation can return to its former glory. Senator Obama is a fairly centrist Democrat who is empathetic and willing to work with everyone. He provides ideas on how the government can get back in touch with the people.
- It's a thoughtful analysis that avoids using divisive terms like "us" and "them"
- His ideas seem realistic and applicable; even if special interests might make their application challenging
- There aren't many--even those on the right seem to feel that he did a nice job on this book
The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream is a great read. Many believe Senator Obama could be a future president, and it's hard to disagree. I'm excited about that prospect after reading this book.
