This title picks up the Barack Obama story in the Oval Office, where the president is beset by crises both inherited and unforeseen - facing defiance from his political foes, disenchantment from voters, disdain from the nation's powerful finance figures and dysfunction within the West Wing. As 2012 looms, leaders of the Republican Party, salivating over Obama's political fragility, see a chance to wrestle back control of the White House - and the country. So how did the Republicans screw it up? How did Obama survive the onslaught and defy the predictions of a one-term presidency?
