Synopsis: Barack Obama found himself in the fi ght of his life when he decided to throw his hat into the ring of the '2008' presidential race. His historical bid to become the next president of the United States of America brought intrigue, excitement, and controversy to the campaign trail in ways the political world will never quite be able to capture in words. I (however) gave it the old college try. As the first seriously considered African American contender, the campaign trail's rhetoric heated up and became fraught with racism, nay-sayers, and vehement critics. By turning three simple words ?Yes We Can? into his mantra, Senator Obama over came those devastating obstacles to become the Distinguishable Gentleman. In this blow by blow narrative account of the most historical presidential race of this country's history, this (easy read depiction) captures the candid political facts, and personal narratives of the candidates who participated in the highly contentious '2008' election. The Distinguishable Gentleman and the Presidential Race of '08' will not only educate, but enlighten, as well as motivate. Americans will be able to refer to this valuable resource many years from now when nostalgia lures them to relive the ?dream? once more. ?It's been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defi ning moment, change has come to America.? President Obama November 4, 2008
About the Author: To whom much is given, much is required. . . I grew up south of Pittsburgh in a small suburb called Clairton. I am the 7th child of nine. My father died while I was relatively young and my mother died several years later. We didn't have much in the way of material things, yet my mother died several years later. We didn't have much in the way of material things, yet my mother taught us to believe in God. I obeyed my mother and today I am a born again Baptist Christian. My belief in God (I feel) is what fuels my passion, my energy and my hope to continue to teach, even when faced with devastating odds. I love what I do. . .I love the children that I teach. . .Kahlil Gibran explains it this way, Work is love made visible. I explain it this way, Love will produce the results intended; it will not come back void. The Holy Spirit taught me that love is the strongest force in the universe; when you choose it, it will produce remarkable results. EDUCATION Wayne State University is my Alma Mater. I received a B.A. in Communications and a teaching certificate in Language Arts. I man currently teaching Language Arts to 7th graders. I recently earned a Masters Degree from Wayne State University in Educational Leadership and I look forward to meeting the challenge of a future administrator. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. James 3:17
