Pub. Date:
Dupuis (political science, U. of Central Florida) and Boeckelman (political science, Western Illinois U.) examine the national political career of Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama. Following a brief biographical overview, they present accounts of his successful primary and general election campaigns for the US Senate in 2004, followed by discussion of his fundraising abilities, his campaign's use of media, and the influence of race on his political career. They also offer a description of his first two years in the Senate and consider the evolution of his "post-partisan" political message. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
