Words: 1425 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Literature Review Paper #: 30462303

President Obama's remarkable ability to combine his liberal inclinations on humanitarian issues with expertly wielded applications of America's economic and military superiority was presaged in an article published by Harvard Magazine before ballots had been cast in the 2008 election.
