So what the 2008 election has given us is of a President who
prizes empathy, tolerance, and an unfettered search for truth, pitted against
country awash in "me-first" intolerance where empathy has become a dirty word
(remember the Sotomayor hearings?) and many people seem to think they know the
truth and are no longer searching for it.
I guess what this book should remind us is that this empathetic,
tolerant and intellectually curious President and the people who agree with him
did WIN this election. Why is it
we still don't feel like a majority?
