about

In the 2012 US Presidential Election, Barack Obama was reelected to an historic second term.  Through his victory, Obama became the first Democratic President since Franklin Roosevelt to be elected twice with a majority of the nation's popular vote.  Obama's reelection was a watershed moment elsewhere in American politics.  Major voter referendums demonstrated a decisive political shift to the left while the Democratic Party was reinvigorated by a powerful coalition of women and minorities.  For Obama's supporters and opponents alike, the Election of 2012 yielded a clear message.

Obama's reelection to the White House, however, was not without challenges.  President Obama was reelected during times of higher unemployment than any of his predecessors.  His first term in office was by no means smooth, with major setbacks in both foreign and domestic policies causing many to question the President's competence.  It is the experience of his first term that will largely define Barack Obama's second term in the White House.  The President will likely try to rectify the errors of his first time while simultaneously trying to build what all second-term Presidents hope to create: a strong place in the annals of American history.  It is this goal – building a legacy – that will be the most powerful force guiding President Barack Obama as he leads the United States for another four years.
