    has it in him to be there right after washington, lincoln and fdr...he's that brilliant and well-tempered.

    but a lot of stuff will determine that in the next four years. yesterday's liberal gauntlet was a good sign.  everyone is happy today including krugman.  i notice that the rec list is kind of bereft of obama love--on a day he should get LOTS from liberals and progressives.

    one thing he has done, is set the bar high for the next democratic nominee.  they better have the passion and support of the netroots and the base--so if thats you mrs. clinton--don't be afraid to be a liberal.  and bring us hillary 2.0.

      are well-tempered. Humans are good-tempered. I hope you don't mind this good-tempered editing aside.

    •  Really, probably more like 30 or 40 years (0+ / 0-)

      I think everything will depend on how the healthcare law evolves over the next few decades. If it is strengthened and expanded over time the same way SS was, then Obamacare may push his legacy into the top tier.
