Summary
"Barack Obama's speech on the Edmund Pettus Bridge ... should have represented the culmination of Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream of racial unity. Yet ... Reid [posits] that, despite the progress we have made, we are still a nation divided--as seen recently in headline-making tragedies such as the killing of Trayvon Martin ... With President Obama's election, Americans expected an open dialogue about race but instead discovered the irony of an African American president who seemed hamstrung when addressing racial matters ... To understand why that is so, Reid examines the complicated relationship between Barack Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton, and how their varied approaches to the race issue parallel the challenges facing the Democratic party itself"--
