It’s a lot for one man to shoulder, but Obama has many fine examples of leadership he can look to as he takes the highest office in the world.
King, Obama’s predecessor, also sought to forge a common ground. He wanted people from all walks of life to disregard color and address issues that spanned across those racial lines.
