Obama's Evolution

Brownstein, Ronald
January 2011
National Journal;1/29/2011, p7
The author ponders on the State of the Union address given by U.S. President Barack Obama in January 2011. He asserted that the speech by Obama indicated his stand as a leader rather than his legislative plans. The presidency of Obama began by passing into law a stimulus plan that would respond to the economic crisis that the country had been suffering then, he added. It is also stated that Obama, like the other Democratic presidents before him, has been moved by a vision of carrying out the political platform of his party.
