How Chicago Shaped Obama

The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza has one of the best background pieces I've seen written on Sen. Barack Obama. It's a must read for all political junkies. Unfortunately, the magazine's cover page above, which accompanied Lizza's story, will probably overshadow the substance of his story. Lizza does an outstanding job explaining the dynamics of Chicago politics and, in particular, how Obama drifted from being a progressive Democrat to a loyal Daley machine guy to the disappointment of his earlier supporters.

Did they remember to mention that he lacks a birth certificate and that his young mother slipped out of the country to give birth to him in some foreign land so that he wouldn't be eligible to be president when he grew up??

No, Art, just all the stuff I've been telling you about Obama which makes him just another Chicago politician.
