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.
