Welcome to 44thPOTUS. On this blog I am looking to piece together a few coherent strands from this extraordinary race, and point you towards some of the reasons why we are at this moment in history.

I will look back on the election season and look forward to the priorities of the 44th President of the United States. I will analyse the issues, the money, the media, the distractions, and mostly the strategies of both campaigns.

Hello Pete. You may be interested in this on the BBC iPlayer. The American Future: A History, by Simon Schama: American Fervour. One or two direct references to Obama - but it is an hour!

Interesting quote from same programme, "I don't believe the answer's in the Whitehouse. I believe it's in our homes. We're making the decisions. You can't legislate morality. You can't pass laws to make people better. But we almost look at a Presidential candidate sometimes as a saviour that can come and rescue our country." Pastor Johnny Hunt.

The quote continues with a religious theme, but I only appreciate this first bit.
