How Obama Won by Earl Ofari Hutchinson

How Obama Won by Earl Ofari Hutchinson is now available. Here's what the book's website says:

How Obama Won is a provocative, hard hitting critical assessment of the issues, events, forces, politics, pressures and controversy that shaped and ensnared Barack Obama in his historic 2008 presidential campaign.

Political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson examines the impact of race and gender, campaign strategy, the key political players, the nature of presidential politics, the changes in the Democratic and Republicans parties, the importance of the black, Hispanic, youth, women and blue collar white worker votes, the role of corporation and special interests in American politics.

Hutchinson tells what the first African-American to win the White House means to America and the world.

If you watched this recent election as closely as I did, you probably saw or read Hutchinson's commentary. This is the first book out on the election (isn't it? it has to be), and I'm really looking forward to seeing it.

Thank you so much for posting information about How Obama Won. I got the first shipment of book off the truck yesterday. For details about how to get your copy, visit

It is one of the first books to be released - we pushed very hard to get it finished before the inauguration. Also, it might be of interest, that I'll be interviewing Dr Hutchinson on my internet radio show on Monday January 19th at 3 pm EST - its a live show and people are welcome to listen online or to call in with comments or questions.
