Donovan Slack on the Next Four Years of Pres. Obama
On Monday in Washington, D.C., Barack Obama will be sworn in for a second term as President of the United States.
A lot has changed since his first inaugural. In 2008, Obama was the first African-American to assume the highest office in the land. The country was also coming off eight years under Pres. George W. Bush, and the economy — and many US industries — seemed on the verge of collapse.
Donovan Slack joined Kara Miller to talk about Obama's first four years in office, and what lies ahead in a second term. Slack is a reporter for POLITICO, and has covered Pres. Obama, day in and day out, for the blog POLITICO 44.
