Andreas Daum, professor of history, was interviewed by
NPR for a story about President Obama’s first visit to
Berlin since his election in 2008, a visit that falls in the same
month that John F. Kennedy delivered his famous “Ich bin ein
Berliner” speech a half century ago. “He might not even
try to imitate John F. Kennedy, but it would be surprising if he
were to miss the opportunity to at least refer to his Democratic
predecessor,” he said.
