HALL OF FAMEon November 8, 2008
Jon Meacham and Evan Michaels come to speak about the special 'Newsweek edition' devoted to the election - campaign. In a sense this project is a continuation of the books written by Teddy White. They speak insightfully about the great manipulative skill of Obama in running the campaign. They speak about how he understood how people wanted to help him, and knew how to let them do that. They also point to his courage in going against the advice of his advisors and taking on the Jeremiah Wright problem, directly by going forth and speaking about it.
Tapper speaks about the transition period, and how Obama has had a team preparing it for a month already. He speaks about Obama's being a genuine intellectual, and also a regular guy up on popular culture. He speaks about his not being an old Washington hand, and so free of its jargon and culture. He talks about Obama being a charming guy, but one not easy to know. He speaks also about the need for a President to be 'tough' and he believes that Obama is tough. He says that Obama has grown into the job and realizes how much people are hurting, and that he has a tremendous sense of responsibility for this. He believes that what Obama must worries about is disappointing these people.
A very interesting segment.
