I need 4 to 6 kid-friendly Obama accomplishments.... [View all]

Ok, so each kid in my son's 2nd grade class picked a famous person for a brief oral report. My kid (I'm so proud) was the only one who picked Barack Obama. As part of the report, each kid must give 4-6 examples of how the person they picked "made a difference." My son asked me for some more examples besides that he was really cool, a nice man, and played basketball really well. LOL


I started rattling off stuff like he saved General Motors and ended the Iraq War... and my son just gave me a blank stare. I realize half my problem is dumbing it down so kids can understand. Help!

P.S. I realize this is also good practice for discussions with Republicans.
