Picking up on the now-familiar “Obama is the Future” meme, Prozac Nation author Elizabeth Wurtzel provided this crystal-ball preview in the The Wall Street Journal. Should be one heckuva future!
Mr. Obama is what the future looks like: a biracial child of divorce, schlepped halfway around the world by a conscientious but confounded single mother, abandoned by a wayward but winning Kenyan father, international but somehow still all-American, a party-hardy Harvard Law graduate. That is, an ordinary extraordinary guy, the dreamiest of all our dreams. If only every kid from a broken home could turn out to be such a fine gentleman!
