Barack Obama, Ano I

  title={Barack Obama, Ano I},
  author={Ant{\^o}nio Lassance},
What kind of president Barack Obama is? This article suggests: neither Lincoln, as in Obama’s dreams, nor Carter, as the Republicans depict. Lyndon Johnson is the closest archetype due to many aspects. The most important are the similar dual presidential agendas: one, in foreign policy, is the inherited agenda of war; the second, in domestic policy, is concerned to the expansion of social rights. Is Obama going to meet the same fate?
