yellow journalism and tell-alls may sell books and make money; but I don't think you are giving Obama a fair deal. Isn't a lot of pressure coming from Israel; and you are not letting him do what he wants. Obama grew up in Hawaii; he is an outsider to Chicago, and that is in his favor because of the infamous corrupt politics here. He was asked by one of Newton Minow's daughter, a teacher at Harvard, to join the Minow law firm in Chicago, where I came in contact with him. His wife has an uncle who is Jewish and he made many Jewish friends here, but that was later in life. I do think both he and his wife are nice people.
