Maureen Dowd Admits Obama an "Invented" Man :- A Storyteller Loses the Story Line

Her whole article is worth the read (including the de rigueur jabs at Bush and Cheney), but this line killed me.

How does a man who invented himself as a force by writing one of the most eloquent memoirs in political history lose control of his own narrative?

Sometimes the non-fiction aspects of life take precedence out in the real, non-fiction world, Maureen. Yeesh.

She goes on...

In “Dreams From My Father,” Obama showed passion, lyricism, empathy and an exquisite understanding of character and psychological context — all the qualities that he has stubbornly resisted showing as president. It was a book that promised a president who could see into the hearts of other people. But there’s so much you don’t learn about candidates in campaigns, even when they seem completely exposed.
a) "Dreams..." was more than likely ghost-written (by William Ayers?).

b) Did Candidate Obama "seem completely exposed"? By his fawning lapdog media? Not in anyone's dreams.
