Obama’s Second Term

The inaugeration of President Obama has sparked a flurry of articles about his achievements/legacy and second terms in general.

Here are links to one or two of the best:

Firstly the Economist looks to the history books- with a piece entitled ‘How will history view me’. The article suggests that Obama has to focus on the economy and foreign policy if he is to be remembered as a ‘great’ President.

Many articles have focused on what they call Obama’s ‘liberal’ agenda- acknowledging the influence he put on gay rights in his inaugeral address.  The New Yorker has suggested what Obama should do to realise the rhetoric.
