What Obama should read

Washington Monthly asks authors, journalists, academics and public intellectuals - what books do you hope President Obama reads in his spare time?

As this article appears in a "progressive" magazine, and the folks polled are mostly self-identifed "progressives", some of the answers are drearily predictable (Debra Dickerson pimps for Howard Zinn... sigh) but many are unexpected and sound interesting as hell. This is going to be an expensive article for me, as I've jotted down notes for a trip to amazon.com.
