So who will be his Ted Sorensen this time?
The reader should forget for a minute about Obama’s alleged courage and focus instead on the phrase, “President Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer prize-winning book.” This phrase would carry a little more weight, and the award would make a little more sense, if JFK actually wrote Profiles in Courage. He did not.
In a similar vein, and here is where the irony comes into play, Barack Obama has been credibly accused of not writing in any meaningful way his own two books, Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope. The apolitical celebrity biographer Christopher Andersen sends six pages of his 2009 book, Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage, explaining how neighborhood editor and terrorist Bill Ayers took over the writing role from a “hopelessly blocked” Obama. Literary forensic work on Obama’s books supports Andersen’s claim.
