MY PARTNER, MY FRIEND
By Claudia Clark
The Relationship between U.S. President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel
My Partner, My Friend explores how the relationship between Barack Obama and Dr. Angela Merkel evolved from one of extreme apprehension to one of deep friendship and a partnership that captivated the world.
My Partner, My Friend explains why Barack Obama’s and Dr. Angela Merkel’s partnership is so important to today’s world leaders – the transformation of their relationship exemplifies how it is possible for political adversaries to establish a bond of trust, respect, and even friendship.
