Good to great

That's the title of a bestselling book on American business, but it also describes my experience reading two recent magazine pieces about the early political career of Barack Obama: Chicago magazine's take is good and the New Yorker's is great.

It exemplifies the difference between a decent city magazine and an outstanding national one.

Judge for yourself:

The Friends of O [Chicago]

Making It [New Yorker]
