Considered a long shot against the favored Hillary Clinton and with little record of achievement behind him, Obama would nonetheless mount one of the most audacious electoral campaigns in American history. Portraying himself as a new kind of politician who could bridge America’s divides, Obama employed a soaring and at times almost religious oratory which captured the imagination of the public. As 2007 drew to a close the once considered long shot had become a serious contender for the highest office in the land. It was in this period that the foundation for his presidency would be laid.How did we get from there to here? The Quotable Obama attempts to answer this question by using chronologically ordered quotes from the media, the American people, and the man himself. What emerges is a stream of consciousness, an almost virtual twitter feed that provides insight into the nation’s thoughts and mood during that time. Hope, fear, excitement, skepticism…it’s all here as America bears its soul and the junior senator from Illinois begins his ascension to the highest office in the land.
