Let’s enjoy (and admire) President Barack Obama while we can

Regular readers of NightHawk will know that I have been an admirer of Barack Obama since even before he entered the Senate. On the day that the election of his successor as US President begins in earnest with the Iowa caucuses. let’s take a moment to reflect on the person who currently occupies the White House.

I’m with Dick Meyer who states in this column:

“Americans are lucky to have Barack Obama as president and we should wake up and appreciate it while we can. President Obama will go down in history as an extraordinary president, probably a great one. He will have done this in an era that doesn’t aggrandize leaders and presidents, but shrinks them. All presidents have had profound opposition, vicious enemies and colossal failures. A few were beloved and others deeply respected in their day, but none in the modern era and certainly not Obama.”
