Imagine a progressive president fighting to fix the insane economic inequality in the country or to end the senseless drug war or best of all battling to get money out of politics. Wouldn't that be wonderful? Well, that's not the president we have. We have one who is coasting. But God knows what he's coasting toward.
A second term of office for a president should be one that defines and seals an historical legacy, one in which a certain level of maturity and vision is achieved in the absence of the need to get reelected to office. Obama's second term is shaping up to be nothing more than a repeat of his lackluster, or half-assed, first four years in office.
