Nothing deep or insightful in this observation. Right now the press is aflurry with something else Obama is reading, that biography of FDR. (That book of poetry is of more interest to me.) Does that really mean anything?
Doesn’t anyone remember that Bush was reading the David McCullough biography of John Adams right before September 11th, mentioning that he and John Qunincy Adams have something in common?
How did that turn out?
Obama’s the man i voted for and continue to support, but it should be too obvious that any political biography mentioned by any politician is not a window into his soul, but a political prop.
Besides, wouldn’t the biography of heroic failure like Huey P. Long be more compelling and insightful? Plus, it would scare the shit out of the right people.
