ABSTRACT
The article profiles 2008 U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, arguing that his appeal is genuine and conservatives should take him seriously as a political threat. Despite his relative lack of experience, Obama is seen as a serious challenge to the candidacy of fellow Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton, and his rhetoric of unity and optimism is compared favorably with that of former U.S. president Ronald Reagan, but with a liberal political platform behind it.
