Historians For Obama

A new endorsement:

As president, Barack Obama would only begin the process of healing what ails our society and ensuring that the U.S. plays a beneficial role in the world. But we believe he is that rare politician who can stretch the meaning of democracy, who can help revive what William James called "the civic genius of the people."

Background on the Jamesian Obamans here. Ralph Luker, of Cliopatria fame, is one of them.
