Political analyst and Huffington Post columnist Earl Ofari Hutchinson’s in his new book How Obama Won says that President-elect Barack Obama’s smash White House election honeymoon will be short-lived. The economy, the financial meltdown, the war, and looming foreign policy crises aren’t the only towering obstacles and challenges for Obama. He faces the challenge of meeting inflated public expectations of quick successes.
Hutchinson examines the daunting problems that Obama faces in ending the war, promoting economic recovery, and developing polices that reverse the damage from Bush polices in dealing with looming foreign policy challenges.
Hutchinson says that Obama has one even more daunting task that Bush didn’t have. And that’s meeting the wildly high expectations that he can bring quick and immediate relief on the economy and a lasting resolution of the Iraq War.
Obama, Hutchinson, insists inadvertently created those soaring public expectations of miracle changes with his inspiring campaign pledge and promise of hope and change. That promise energized millions of black, Hispanic, youth, women, blue collar white worker and middle class voters to believe in the unthinkable, and that’s that an African-American could win the White House
“The biggest challenge that Obama faces is meeting the expectations of those who passionately believed in his message of change,” says Hutchinson, “If he falters the public honeymoon with him will be shorter than any of his predecessors.”
How Obama Won tells how and what he must do to make sure that the honeymoon lasts.
