Joe Klein
Journalist and columnist, perhaps best known for his novel >Primary Colors.


Barack Obama can answer questions no one else can.

“[Barack] Obama seemed the political equivalent of a rainbow – a sudden preternatural event inspiring awe and ecstasy. . . . There aren’t very many people – ebony, ivory or other – who have Obama’s distinctive portfolio of talents. . . . Obama’s candor is reminiscent of John McCain. . . . He transcends the racial divide so effortlessly that it seems reasonable to expect that he can bridge all the other divisions – and answer all the impossible questions — plaguing American public life.”
