Pastorale americana - American Pastoral deals with Barack Obama’s victory: the victory of one model of political marketing which is in many ways characterized by networking and bottom-up mobilization. But does this constitute a realignment, that is a long lasting regime based on a new dominating partisan coalition? Does it inaugurate an epochmaking shift in power relations between different and opposing constituencies and social forces? Will the president be able to transfer to the White House the leadership he has consistently exerted over an extenuating campaign? Will such a leadership succeed in incorporating part of the anonymous popular voices that Obama’s campaign newly won or won back to politics?
Key words: Us, Obama, elezioni presidenziali.
Parole chiave: Usa, Obama, presidential elections.
