History repeats itself. This book chronicles the rise and fall of historical icons and empires, and what that means for Obama, America and the race for the White House. Citing examples from Sumeria, Egypt, Greece, Rome, World War II and today, the authors make a compelling argument for caution. If politics is just one more circle of life, even Obama cannot stop the fateful ride he is on.

What do Ronald Reagan, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Abraham Lincoln, and Augustus Caesar have in common? And what do their histories tell us about the probabilities for an Obama Presidency? Reflections on Barack Hussein Obama chronicles the rise and fall of icons and empires, and what these lessons of history teach us about the possibilities for Obama and America. "The purpose of the American Presidential election is to choose a servant willing ... to make untold personal sacrifices. The pomp and pageantry ... are imposters. The yoke is heavy. The road ... is long. It does not always go to the most qualified. It does not always go to the most determined... Its about time someone wrote something worth passing on to my kids. --Michael Kramer, TX
Citing examples from ancient Sumeria, ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, World War II, the 1950s, 60s, 70s and today, the authors have developed a very interesting premise to the application of political science in the 2008 race for the White House. Who would have invested in ... Truman, Johnson or Ford while they were yet to be plucked from obscurity? Yet ... Someone did desire those unlikely Presidencies. Someone did pluck them from obscurity. Someone did exert an effort so unseen it resembled an act of God... A little too serious at times, but definitely worth the easy read. --Shannon Pesto, NJ
Despite the seriousness of most of the subject matter, this story manages to playfully deliver contrasting views on the human spirit and the purpose if life, without compromising the integrity of the underlying philosophies or theologies. Overall, it reads as easy as your average John Grisham or Robert Ludlum book. Once upon a time, the most common of shortcomings were enough to kill a campaign. ... fraternizing with the enemy, committing adultery, ... illegal drugs, ... inappropriate business practices; any one of these could bury a politician s presidential aspirations for life. That is, until William Jefferson Clinton went to Washington. In the end, your typical happy ending is peppered with sober realizations: If history repeats itself. even Obama cannot stop this ride he is on. Join The Enlil Institute in celebrating Reflections on Barack Hussein Obama, a literary achievement on the probabilities of America s political history and future. --The Enlil Institute
