Glenn Thrush: Who is Barack Obama?

Posted: Updated:

POLITICO senior white house reporter, Glenn Thrush, recently spoke with us about the evolution of President Obama. Looking at the very progressive inaugural speech, Thrush echoes a sentiment many Americans are thinking:

"After that inaugural speech, a lot of people want to know who Barack Obama really is."

Thrush also sees an emboldened Obama ready for his second term:

"I think to a certain extent he was renting for the first four years, now he feels like he owns."

What do you envision happening in President Obama's second term? Leave a comment below.
