Obama: Professor President


I just listened to a very well produced radio piece on the academic and intellectual development of Barack Obama. The BBC is running the piece here. It included interviews with Obama’s professors at Harvard, his colleagues at the University of Chicago, and his former students. The piece reminded me of just how impressive Obama is and how one cannot help looking at this man with complete respect. It was highlighted that one of Obama’s biggest assets is his ability to identify with such a wide breadth of the population and academia is one of them. I highly recommend downloading this show and listening to it when you have some time.
