The Obama hustle

Todd Spivak was a young South Side reporter who observed Barack Obama as a state legislator. His “Barack Obama and me” recounts his observations of Obama as a political hustler. Victor Davis Hanson observes Obama wrestling with the revelation of the deep thoughts of his spiritual mentor Jeremiah Wright and dubs Obama “Our new Nixon.” Rich Lowry meditates on “The dishonesty of hope.” Obama has matured as a hustler in a hurry.
