First change : A Black standing for presidential election
Second change: Winning the election
Thus Mr Barack Obama completely epitomises the 'change' and this truly inspires USA to bring in the radicalism required. This book reflects his envisioned USA and by following the 'by the people,for the people and of the people' dictum,yes he can .One can ,with surety, predict an imminent change that would be evident during his presidentship because 'yes ,he can'.

This book is a "must read" for this election season. It provides a clear and comprehensive statement of what Obama would do as president to get the country back on the right track. As a scientist, I am heartened by his commitment to improving education in math and science, and his promise to double federal funding of basic scientific research. He gets it that science education and basic scientific research are crucial for innovation, and that innovation is essential to building a strong economy and creating good jobs. The inclusion in the book of some of his best speeches is a wonderful bonus.

Change We Can Believe In outlines Barack Obama's proposals to change the direction of our country. In Denver, he said we cannot turn back –not with so much work to be done. As the candidates debate the nature of change, this book provides a clear statement of the future path Obama envisions. As a teacher, I am particularly interested in his education plans, which are both comprehensive and challenging. Comprehensive in that they address the entire arc of education, from preschool through college, recognizing how these different levels must all work together for the benefit of America's students. Challenging in that they call for reform in exchange for additional resources, and hold us all responsible – teachers, students, parents, government, and the community. These are the specifics for change that will help our kids.

I am very grateful to see a presidential candidate setting forth real, specific policy solutions to our nation's crises. This book is for anyone tired of false promises in Washington, and anyone interested in more than just rhetoric from a politician.

I highly recommend "Change We Can Believe In" for anyone wondering what an Obama Administration would mean for the United States. In this book, Sen. Obama lays out a clear and common-sense vision of how to reclaim America's greatness - restroring fiscal sanity, improving America's leadership in global affairs and saving our planet from global warming. For any skeptics of Sen. Obama wondering "where's the beef?" this book provides a compelling answer.
