"Religious or secular, black, white, or brown, we sense - correctly - that the nation's most significant challenges are being ignored...Perhaps more than any other time in our recent history, we need a new kind of politics, one that can excavate and build upon those shared understandings that pull us together as Americans..." If Barack Obama is successful in his quest to become President of the United States he will dramatically change the face that his country presents to the world. In this book he describes the importance of empathy in politics, his hopes for a different America with different policies, and how the ideals of its democracy can be renewed. The second book written by then-Senator Barack Obama.
