Can Obama Close a Trade Deal?

"Some presidents have a natural affinity for trade deals, but in the first year of his administration, President Obama seemed to many observers like he couldn't care less. He appointed a likable Dallas mayor without much experience in the field to be his trade representative and gave him very little negotiating to do," Politico reports.

"Four years later, Obama has a chance to create the biggest free-trade deal in history -- a pact involving 12 countries in the Asia-Pacific region, dwarfing NAFTA -- and remaking global trade policy for a generation."

"The question is, can Obama actually do it? There's plenty of reason for doubt."
