The Election of 2008

At the end of our course, we look back to the election of Barack Obama in 2008. This is explored through the testimony and perspectives of a practitioner who took part in the Obama campaign, of a journalist who traveled across America in fall 2008, and of a political scientist who has written about the election. Did Obama's victory signal a turn to progressivism, and how did digital technologies transform electoral politics?...

By way of concluding "The Making of the US President," we reflect on historical parallels (and discontinuities)....

Great Review. I am active in politics and still found there were things I'd forgotten. Thanks for the fun and the review.
