Cue Willie Nelson...
Barack Obama is going back on the road again. The New York Times' Jeff Zeleny (who knows Iowa well as a former reporter for the Des Moines Register) reports today that Obama will go travel more in the U.S. this year to re-connect with voters. Obama's popularity has been going down in the polls as more Americans lose their jobs and the country is in the middle of a heated fight about how to reform the health care system. No word, according to Zeleny's report, on whether Obama plans to come back to Iowa soon. But, of course, Iowa is really where it all began in many ways for him with his victory in the Iowa Caucuses.
Obama has begun his sophomore year at the White House. What did you think of his first year as president? Did he bring the change you wanted and the improvement to your day-to-day lives that you hoped? Grade the president on his performance...A,B,C,D or F.
