A new book “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama“ delves into the life and times of Barack Obama to reveal quite a bit of previously unknown information about the iconic 44th President, including an influential relationship with the woman who came before Michelle. What should we make of the intellectual and transactional nature of his relationships? How did Garrow discover the previously unknown ex-girlfriend? What did he learn about Obama's more controversial relationships, i.e. Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Rev. Jeremiah Wright? And the university elective the Obama Campaign never wanted you to know about. Pulizer Prize Winning Author and Historian David Garrow joins Dan and Amy to discuss his explosive new book.
