They Said This Day Would Never Come: Chasing the Dream on Obama’s Improbable Campaign
The phrase everything old is new again lens itself to the nostalgic tendencies of millennials. The vast amounts of money and time they lavish on all the various trinkets, brands, and of course television shows of their youth. But as this election cycle has revealed, there is also a deep longing to relive past campaigns, to revisit beloved figures, and gain new insight into crowning moments of our national identity.
They Said This Day Would Never Come: Chasing the Dream on Obama’s Improbable Campaign by Chris Liddell-Westefeld is the perfect vehicle for such a pursuit.
A compelling volume of oral and anecdotal history about Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign. Told in great detail by numerous volunteers and campaign staff. It’s the kind of Presidential history that many want and rarely get.
A glittering showcase of over two hundred interviews including David Axelrod, David Plouffe, and President Obama himself. To say nothing of the hundreds of young volunteers, many who would go on to serve in the Obama administration, who dropped everything, and worked tirelessly to see the underdog candidate make history.
The definitive book on the Obama years has yet to be written, and as the partisan tensions of the era slowly pull back, this book may very well be it.
