Being born to a black African runaway Muslim dad and a white Christian mother could have messed up a young man forever. Following mom from Hawaii to Indonesia with her second Muslim husband could have buried his life in the Third World forever.

Moving on, the mother rejoined her white family in the Great American Midwest. As his mother had to work, Barack's grandparents saw to his raising. They were better educated than most and gave ample evidence of having superior moral and intellectual character.

However he did it, he managed to integrate the various strands of his history into a unified personality. For a racially mixed child in racist America he overcame great obstacles.

Barack achieved a Harvard Law degree when it commanded a six-figure salary. Instead, he worked as a community organizer. He met and married a woman superior to him on the job who earned more money than he did.

After he entered the rough-and-tumble of Chicago politics, Barack retained his cool and detached attitude. He articulated his inner drive and determination only when he needed to display them.

"They won -- why don't they act like it?" said Dana Perino, former White House press secretary to Bush. "The more they fight, the more defensive they look. It's only been 10 months, and they're burning bridges in a lot of different places."

White House officials see things differently. They see an opportunity to corner critics of the president's policies, especially on health care and financial regulations, and, in the process, further marginalize the Republican Party.

Privately, officials have talked with relish for months of the potential to isolate the GOP as a narrow party of white, Southern conservatives with little appeal to independent-minded voters.
