For Barack, these issues aren’t political: they’re personal. Because Barack knows what it means when a family struggles. He knows what it means to want something more from your kids and grandkids. Barack knows the American dream because he’s lived it. And he wants everyone in this country — everyone — to have the same opportunity no matter who we are, or where we’re from, or what we look like, or who we love. And he believes that when you’ve worked hard and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. No, you reach back and give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.
