→ How Obama can Learn from Failure

One of my former law professors writing in the New York Times:

If Mr. Obama wants to avoid Monroe’s mistakes, he must extend the narrative of his presidency with a view to posterity. He should consider whom he wants to follow him and which of his legislative initiatives Republicans might support. If Mr. Obama doesn’t get involved in the next election or cannot produce significant bipartisan achievements, he risks having his successors belittle or bury his legacy.

Of course, my hope is that President does not produce significant bipartisan achievements and that Professor Gerhardt has rightly predicted that the President’s accomplishment will be buried.
