A Life Model


 There, he was the first African American

To hold the position of President of Harvard Law Review

There, he is the youngest African American

Who became U.S. senator

There, he is the youngest African American

Who runs for the Oval Office:

U.S. President.

Commander in Chief.

His age: 46

Two years in senate,

Of that, one and a half years he spends on campaigning…


He is a model for our students across the land

When it comes to academics and being studious

He is a model of eloquence for a myriad of lawyers…


But when it comes to the treacherous sea of world politics

When Communism is still contagious

Terrorism bacteria are still re-growing

The down time of global economy is in its cycle

Confusion of the two separate models can be lethal

Just look at Europe

Many scholars,

But politicians come from a different breed…
