Obama and the Burden of History

"Decades of teaching in the universities, the schools, even the kindergartens, along with all the lessons of Big Bird, Mister Rogers, and Oprah Winfrey, have made these habits of mind and heart pervasive—but fortunately not yet universal—in our culture. And President Obama is the incarnation of those habits in policy.
He is very small, you might say, to carry such freight. But that is the point: he is small, and he threatens to make us smaller."
