| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

Shelby Steele, author of the award-winning The Content of Our Character (1991) and last year's White Guilt, feels a kinship toward Barack Obama. They both were born to white mothers and black fathers. But he doesn't think Obama can win the White House.

In his latest book, A Bound Man: Why We Are Excited About Obama and Why He Can't Win (Free Press, 134 pages, $22), Steele asserts that perhaps Obama's mixed race will work against him in his run for the highest political office in the land.
