Barack Obama: anthropologist-in-chief —

Relatives have described Barack Obama Sr. as a complicated man, brilliant and imperious, charming and brash, who began to drink heavily as his dreams of becoming one of Kenya’s leading government economists foundered. He died in a car crash at age 46 without ever fulfilling his early promise.

President Obama often describes his life as an only-in-America saga, the improbable rise of the son of a white woman from Kansas and a black man from Kenya to the American presidency. But his father’s ascent was astounding, too, as he journeyed from the dusty roads of his rural village to the halls of Harvard.

“我们对摆在我们面前的工作不应该有幻想,改革我们的学校、改变我们使用能源的方式、减少赤字, 这些没有一件是容易的。所有这些工作都需要时间,而且会更为困难,因为我们会对几乎每一件事情都争论不休:细节、成本、每一条法律的每个字眼。
