Obama's Legacy

Walter Shapiro listened to President Obama's speech on the economy today but says it "comes three years too late. In early 2010, Obama confronted the question that ultimately every president has to answer: What will be my legacy?"

"Obama chose health care reform, and it has made all the difference. To govern is to choose - and by choosing health care, Obama inadvertently lost his chance to put a lasting imprint on the economy. High unemployment, and the personal anguish that comes with it, will be as much a legacy of his two terms in office as Obamacare."
