Based on the totality of Obama's run for office and his presidency to date, how do you think History
will see him?

In 5 years?

In 10 years

In 50 years?

4. 5 years? as the bi-partisan president.
seen against the backdrop of growing conservatism of both parties -- and in particular the republican.

9. Assuming that's true, what will it mean?
Will it mean he was the last of the reasonable presidents or the first of the hard right presidents?

15. I don't see how they can keep from documenting the
Conservative movement in both parties and in Obama.
And the blatant inability to legislate on behalf of the people.

What can they make of gitmo when they tried the one guy in court and got a conviction or dropping the PO or extending the Bush tax cuts?

16. In 50 years he'll probably be remembered as one of the last presidents of the US
back when we still believed in such quaint notions.

18. He will always be a character in the history books.
First African-American POTUS; history will always remember him for this if nothing else.
