President’s Day weekend is coming up, so here’s an appropriate prompt.
This is not a hard question to answer, at all. It’s Barack Obama. The nation and the world are the poorer for losing his leadership.
He was by no means a perfect president. He made drone warfare a thing, and deported a lot of people, and plenty of other things. But on the whole? Amazing, upstanding, intelligent, loving guy. Kids adored him and he adored them back. He’s a good father. He’s a good husband. He lived his values. Instead of schmoozing with Boehner after work he went home and had dinner with his family. He continued this even though people resented him for it. In some ways he was too aloof and cerebral, but those traits also informed many of his better actions. He’s also wicked funny.
I am eternally grateful to the universe that I got to live in Obama’s America. A lot of improvements happened under him.
