At the end of an otherwise non-Barack related dream, I had the astonishing image of Barack eating the votes that had been cast for Hillary like slices of smoked tofu. He didn't say anything, but seemed calm.
In the spring of 2008, during the Democratic primaries, I collected the sleeping dreams people were having about Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, edited them slightly for length, and posted them here. Once the primaries were over, I stopped. The dream researcher Kelly Bulkeley continues the project by collecting dreams about Barack Obama on his related site.
I am the author of several books of fiction: How Should a Person Be?, The Middle Stories, Ticknor, a children's book called We Need a Horse, and The Chairs Are Where the People Go, with Misha Glouberman. I am currently working on a book that is still accepting contributors called Women in Clothes. Details at: www.womeninclothes.comwww.sheilaheti.net
