Salt Lake City, Utah – Hendrik Hertzberg is political analyst for The New Yorker, so it's little surprise he followed the 2008 presidential race closely. But this election was different. Hertzberg says he was captured by what he calls the "remarkable character" of Barack Obama, and that he began to think of the presidency not as a branch of government, but as a person. Hertzberg has collected his articles and blog posts into a new book called Obamanos! and Monday he joins Doug to talk about the historic election.
