Obama, Explained

There are 23 comments on the www.theatlantic.com story from Feb 9, 2012, titled Obama, Explained. In it, www.theatlantic.com reports that:

Is he a skillful political player and policy visionary—a chess master who always sees several moves ahead of his opponents (and of the punditocracy)? Or is he politically clumsy and out of his depth—a pawn overwhelmed by events, at the mercy of a second-rate staff and of the Republicans? Here, a longtime analyst of the presidency takes the measure of our 44th president, with a view to history.
