The author challenges the reader regarding U.S. President Barack Obama's ability to do as he promised after mesmerizing the world with his post-Bush politics. He accuses Obama of turning the concept of change into a weapon of mass seduction and has turned from a reconciler to a president of triangulation. He points that Obama's liberating charisma stays only with those who still need a non-Bush to believe in, like those who honored him with the 2009 Nobel Peace laureate. He says that no matter what happens, the U.S. will remain a global leader.
