  1. How one yearns for Obama! Will there ever again be a President with his grace, wisdom, eloquence & deep compassion? They seem to be unfashionable attributes these days.
    Having read both of Barack Obama’s books, & “Becoming” as soon as it was released, I have only the highest admiration & respect for this admirable couple who kept mastering adversity despite all the obstacles thrust upon them.
