Steve Levingston | Barack and Joe: The Making of an Extraordinary Partnership

Steve Levingston | Barack and Joe: The Making of an Extraordinary Partnership

The extraordinary partnership of Barack Obama and Joe Biden is unique in American history. The two men, their characters and styles sharply contrasting, formed a dynamic working relationship that evolved into a profound friendship. Their affinity was not predestined. Obama and Biden began wary of each other: Obama an impatient freshman disdainful of the Senate's plodding ways; Biden a veteran of the chamber and proud of its traditions.

Gradually they came to respect each other's values and strengths and rode into the White House together in 2008. Side-by-side through two tension-filled terms, they shared the day-to-day joys and struggles of leading the most powerful nation on earth. Together Obama and Biden guided Americans through a range of historic moments: a devastating economic crisis, racial confrontations, war in Afghanistan, and the dawn of same-sex marriage nationwide.

Author Steve Levingston offers a new look at this administration. This is the first book to tell the full story of this historic relationship and its substantial impact on the Obama presidency and its legacy.

Following the presentation, the author will sign copies of his book which will be available for sale by Browseabout Books.
