Previewing Obama 2.0

Friday, October 15, 2010

At what point can we properly judge a president’s legacy? Is it after the first term, the first 100 days, or the first 100 years after they've left the Oval Office?

Over the weekend, our partner, The New York Times, will run "The Education of a President," by Peter Baker. The article begins with an American public poised to hand the president a mid-semester report card, in the form of November mid-term election votes. No matter which way they vote, says Baker, a very new presidential administration will emerge.

Peter Baker writes that “for all intents and purposes the first chapter of Obama’s presidency has ended. On Election Day, the next chapter begins.”
