Synopsis

In just a few short years, Barack Obama went from being a young, little-known Illinois senator with an unusual name to the presidency of the United States. Macleans on Barack Obama chronicles his meteoric rise, from campaign dispatches during his struggle for the Democratic nomination against Hillary Clinton—a battle in which Americas fault lines of gender, race and class took centre stage—to his historic fight for the presidency in 2008. Macleans follows Americas first black president as his message of hope is challenged, through highs—passing the health care reform bill, and hunting down Americas most wanted terrorist, Osama bin Laden—to bitter lows, including his tense standoff with hard-right Republicans, chronic unemployment, and even his testy relations with Canada. Once again, Macleans is there as Obama fights the battle of his political life—for a second term in office, in an election that will set the direction of the U.S. for years to come.
