Historians Rate Presidents…Including Obama

leave a comment »

Charlie RoseIn a rerun of a Charlie Rose show from February of this year, a group of nationally acclaimed historians joined Charlie Rose to discuss the various presidents, particularly the more contemporary presidents since FDR to Obama. The historians joining Rose on the panel are Michael Beschloss, Robert A. Caro, Jon Meacham and Doris Kearns Goodwin.

Surprisingly, a considerable amount of the discussion focuses on Obama, not only rating him against those previous presidents but also discussing his personality and how different or similar he is to previous presidents.

Regardless of whether you’re pro or anti Obama, this is very interesting discussion and well worth spending the hour watching.
