Obama's First Year

One of the lead stories in the American Prospect this month details the first year in office of Barack Obama, the darling of the Democratic Party. It's an excellent article and provides a lot of introspection with regards to the huge amount of pressure that he was under from the very beginning to live up to the hype, while still being 99th in Senate seniority. Obama is the John McCain of the Democratic Party in the sense that he has huge cross-party appeal and you can't always predict how he will side on a particular issue. He seems to have continually shown that throughout his first year in the Senate. We can expect great things to continue to come from Obama in the future.
