Sample text

Despite this self-imposed asceticism, Barack Obama’s classmates remember him brightly. The president of MTV Networks, Michael J. Wolf, was in a seminar with Obama and remembers him as “very smart,” adding, “He had a broad sense of international politics and international relations. It was a class with a lot of debate. He was a very, very active participant. I think he was truly distinctive from the other people in that class. ” The “stand-out” completed his undergraduate thesis on the topic of Soviet nuclear disarmament and graduated from Columbia in 1983.

It is clear that this news moved Obama. He knew for certain that he didn’t want to end up in the same place as his father—woefully unhappy and too cynical to help. Thinking that perhaps the best way to ensure true change was to enter government, where he could enact legislation and synthesize all he’d already learned in Chicago, he decided he would leave his life as a community organizer and attend law school at his father’s alma mater. Although he was leaving his job as a community organizer, Obama made a vow that he would come back to Chicago and reunite with those people and churches he had worked with so closely on the South Side—but this time from a different side of the power stratum.

They both love their wives intensely. They’re both very good dads. They are also strong believers in rebuilding the family and rebuilding the infrastructure of our communities…Now, obviously, they have two entirely different approaches as to how to achieve that common good. Obama was asked by the online site BeliefNet if he had any particular routines or rituals before he takes to a podium for a political speech. His answer pointed to the centrality of faith in his own life: The prayer that I tell myself is a fairly simple one: I ask in the name of Jesus Christ that my sins are forgiven, that my family is protected and that I am an instrument of God’s will.
