Jacob Weisberg posted an interesting summary judgment of Obama’s qualities today on Slate. It is an early attempt to break down what kind of president he is.
It’s worth taking a look at, even if we are all/have been sick to death of analyzing this man’s character. In the age of the Internetz, we don’t wait for history “to write itself” (as the saying goes), we write it and debate it and revise it while the events are still going on. I for one think this is a good thing, even if it gives us a headache. By the time history gets canonized for future generations, there will be lots and lots of information to draw from, and the old adage of “the winners write history” will perhaps by then be untrue.
