Assessing the Obama Presidency, One Year After Election

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

It’s the first Tuesday in November, and voters in New Jersey, Virginia and cities across the country are headed to the polls. As the voting gets underway, we take a look back to this Tuesday one year ago, when Americans went to the polls and elected Barack Obama president.

Newsweek's Jonathan Alter offers his assessment of Obama's policy achievements and missteps since; and Takeaway contributor Patrik Henry Bass gives his take on how one year has changed things, as candidate-Obama became President-elect Obama.

Guests:

Jonathan Alter and Patrik Henry Bass
