The Obama Problem
I have posted a piece on the tutor2u blog about Obama's presidency, and why it has failed to live up to expectations. The main reference is an excellent article in the Financial Times by Edward Luce, which I would commend to all students as essential reading about the presidency. West Wing addicts might identify the four insiders identified by Luce with some of Bartlett's people. In Obama's case, though, there might not be a need to "let Obama be Obama"!
