Redemption Song: An Irish Reporter Inside the Obama Campaign
xA unique insider's account of Obama's journey from fledgling politician in Chicago through his acrimonious tussle with Hillary Clinton and culminating in his momentous victory over John McCain. Stanage also examines this amazing tale from a global perspective. He enjoyed unparalleled access to Obama, including being the only Irish journalist to travel on the candidate's plane. Drawing on extensive contacts among Obama's closest advisors and oldest friends, Stanage delivers a blow-by-blow account packed with rare insights. Redemption Song will likely stir up its own share of controversy too, thanks to the author's trenchantly expressed opinions about the tactics used against Obama by the Clintons and the resistance the Democrat encountered from prominent figures in the Irish-American community.
