When Barack Obama became president - elected on November 4, 2008 - he transformed Martin's Luther King's dream into reality. Obama, and the 66.3 million Americans who voted for him, proved to the world that all things are possible. And the day after, people from coast to coast lined up to buy newspapers as souvenirs. The demand was unprecedented, with stands and stores quickly selling out: USA Today sold an extra 380,000 copies, for example, while the Atlanta Journal-Constitution went back to print five times. Now, everyone can own a piece of history, thanks to this gorgeous commemorative album of front pages that capture Barack Obama's extraordinary journey to the White House. Featuring newspapers both domestic and foreign and depicting all the landmarks in this groundbreaking campaign -including the inauguration itself - Obama is a stunning keepsake for all who experienced this remarkable moment... and for future generations, too.
