Default Article Recommends that Obama Play the Grob

There is an entertaining book by Michael Basman where he says:
""Pieces go into the center in reverse order of strength (or value)".
[...] Having decided that the pawn is the weakest piece, we should
consider "what is weaker than a pawn?". The answer is, clearly, that
NOTHING is weaker than a pawn. It follows, with inexorable logic, that
you should place NOTHING in the center at the start of the game and
that, therefore, moves such as 1.e4 or 1.d4, or their equivalents as
Black, are PREMATURE and will lead to the exposure of the central position."
[in "The killer Grob", 1991, Pergamon Chess, ISBN 0-08-037131-0]
