Castañeda, Jorge
January 2008
Newsweek (Pacific Edition);1/21/2008 (Pacific Edition), Vol. 151 Issue 3, p9
The author reflects on what a victory for Illinois Senator and U.S. Presidential candidate, Barack Obama, would mean for the country and abroad. He considers if his presidency would predict any domestic and foreign policy changes. He claims Obama's background appeals to the rest of the world because he is familiar with the Muslim religion and culture and has spent great amounts of time outside of the U.S. He comments on why Obama's race would benefit the international popularity of the U.S.
