If Audacious Hope Turns Into Dispirited Cynicism

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2008

Presidential hopeful Barack Obama faces a unique challenge and set of risks if he is to shoulder the task of righting the American ship of state. Obama's theory of change for this task requires mobilizing the whole nation, fundamentally changing a government and a congress that too often do not respond to the people. I very much doubt that America can be corrected by the kind of tinkering I foresee in the event of any of the other candidates. There is risk in this grand a vision, but wondrous rewards too.
