ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the tedious presidential candidacy of Senator Barack Obama in the U.S. According to the author, Obama cannot seem to close the gap with Senator Hillary Clinton and it is because his strengths are compensated by his weaknesses, his inexperience, his multiple political personas and his strong opponent. It is said that majority of polls since August 1, 2007 showed that Clinton has an advantage over Obama.
