"Let America Be America Again"
The struggle of Barack Obama to become the Democratic candidate for President of the United States, reminded me of the poem "Let America be America Again" by Langston Hughes. I think Obama has tried to bring to the struggle the hope that the United States could once again recover its national mythic historical narrative expressed by Hughes in this poem.
