Barack Obama: The New Great Redeemer – Times Online
Every decade or so the people who control the way we see the world anoint some American politician the Redeemer of a Troubled Planet. It’s been a while coming – neither Al Gore in 2000 (before the luminescence created by his recent joint Nobel/Oscar triumphs) nor John Kerry in 2004 quite fit the bill. But it’s fairly clear now that, with the near-certain nomination by the Democrats of Barack Obama everything is in place for the media to indulge in one of the greatest, orgiastic media fiestas of hero-worship since Elvis Presley.

You will not see a finer example of the genre than the cover story of this week’s Newsweek, which was entitled “The O Team”. Mr Obama is portrayed throughout as an immanently benevolent figure. Not human really, more a comforting presence, a light source. He is always eager to listen to all aides of an argument, always instilling confidence in the weak-willed, resolutely sticking to his high principles and tirelessly spurning the low road of electoral politics. Never in any of the chapters of this hagiography does a Republican, a conservative, appear in a remotely similar light.

Indeed, Obama is unusually talented, inspiring and charismatic figure that seem to bring many people together as never been done. He brings out the best in them. His very ethnicity offers an exciting departure. Yes, Obama is truly a great redeemer.
