Abstract:

"The first African-American to reach the Oval Office swept to power on a promise to restore hope and optimism. Over the course of his campaign, Obama became a hero to millions of young Americans and a global political icon. He also exhibited a steeliness that surprised some commentators - though not those who had followed his career up to that point." "In this gripping account of Obama's meteoric rise, Niall Stanage traces the future presidents first, halting steps as a local politician in Chicago, tells the inside story of the 2004 speech that made him a national star, and explores the tense internal debates that preceded his entry into the 2008 race. Stanage goes behind the scenes of the Illinois senator's long and acrimonious tussle with Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination and, thanks to the access he gained to the Obama campaign (including becoming the only Irish journalist to travel on the candidate's plane), sheds new light on his battle with Republican nominee John McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin. He also examines what Obama's election means for America and the world."--Jacket.
