Barack H(ubris) Obama

U.S. News and World Report has just reported about a dinner Obama held on June 20 with several presidential historians. No mention was made of the reason for the secrecy, but USN&WR did admit that the dinner revealed Obama's belief that he has uniquely positioned to bring about transformaltional change in the US. Chief among his goals is "reforming" health care.

The chosen ones were Michael Beschloss, H. W. Brands, Douglas Brinkley, Robert Caro, Robert Dallek, Doris Kearns Goodwin, David Kennedy, Kenneth Mack, and Garry Wills. Skeptics wonder, since Obama has already published two autobiographies, if the dinner was not a job interview for his chosen biographer.
