Overview

Hendon begins "Black Enough/White Enough: The Obama Dilemma" with Obama's announcement of his presidential bid on February 10, 2007, and follows his entire campaign in a journal-like fashion, all the way to the November 4, 2008 election. This running account is peppered with Hendon's own observations, insights, inside information, and personal anecdotes of his long history with Barack Obama. Hendon pulls no punches and offers a warts-and-all look at how Obama's campaign tiptoed across a tightrope to gain the confidence of white Americans without angering African Americans-the latter not always being successful.
