Obama's Stellar First Year

Ignore the haters, Jacob Weisberg says in Slate: President Obama’s first year has been “brilliant.” Should he achieve health-care reform before his one-year anniversary on January 20, as it appears he will, then “he will deliver his first State of the Union address having accomplished more than any other postwar American president at a comparable point in his presidency.” Weisberg goes on, “Through the summer, Obama caught flak for letting Congress lead the process, as opposed to setting out his own proposal. Now his political strategy is being vindicated.”
