UNDERSTANDING OBAMA CLASS: Professor Charles Ogletree, a close friend of President Obama, plans to teach a class devoted to him — “Understanding Obama.”
According to the Harvard Law School course catalog, professor Charles Ogletree will be teaching a reading group called for one classroom credit during the 2013 spring term.
“This reading group will focus on the way in which race, religion, and politics have impacted the development of President Obama as a leader,” the Harvard Law School Course Catalog explains. “We will explore his views as a biracial child, his time as a student at Harvard Law School, the successes and failures of his political campaigns, and the way religion and his views on faith nearly derailed his campaign. Finally, time will be spent analyzing the challenges he faces as president of the United States in establishing both his domestic and global policies.”

In President Obama’s defense, there are many colleges and universities that offer some ridiculous classes, so this isn’t outside the norm. Doesn’t mean it right. Well, I guess it should be an easy A for any student taking that class since Obama’s body of work is still quite thin.
