Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008 partly because he was a Washington outsider. But when he got to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, that distinction turned out to be double-bladed. While he'd been a brilliant campaign politician, working inside the system as president turned out to be much more of a challenge than Obama had ever imagined.
In UNTITLED ON PRESIDENT OBAMA, Chuck Todd draws upon his unprecedented inner-circle sources to create a gripping account of Obama's tumultuous first term and campaign to win another. And not only does he give us the most revealing portrait of this fascinating president and his struggles, Todd also seeks to define what "Obamism" really is, what the president stands for, and how his decisions have changed--and will change--American politics for generations.
