Funny Colbert Interviews Janny Scott About Obamas Mother

A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack  Obama's Mother

From Denny: Colbert tries to nail down the mysterious  person of Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, since the President has so far been unwilling to talk about her. It sounds like he had, perhaps still has, mixed feelings about his relationship with her.

A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mother

Apparently, she met and married Obama's father in Hawaii when she was only seventeen years old. Hawaii is a multi-cultural state where interracial relationships are not the scandal as on the mainland. Though even back in the 1960's it raised some disapproving eyebrows. But she was a trail blazer.

This is an interesting story of a young highly intelligent woman of high ideals, struggling to find her way in the world. Along the way she made her mistakes with her children like so many parents do.

She left Barack in America to continue schooling with his maternal grandparents as she traveled back to Indonesia. Not much was explained as to the why. This journalist author can only speculate as to the relationship between mother and son. She was never able to interview Obama or his mother before her death.

Still it's an interesting look into the international early life of this president. Obama shares some of his mother's traits in high intelligence, high ideals (he seemed to set aside the past three years), an aloof loner personality. Neither he nor his mother seemed to learn the art of giving of themselves to others.

This is a lively discussion with some interesting biographical information.  If you wish to purchase the book from Amazon the link is above.
