ABSTRACT
The article discusses U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama, and attempts to place his candidacy in a cultural context that dates back to the Vietnam War. The author suggests that the war in Vietnam created a rift in the Baby Boom generation that Obama is not subject to. The author suggests that this, in concert with Obama's race, record of having opposed the war in Iraq before it began, and his relationship with religion, is the source of his potential as a leader.
