What do you think President Obama's biggest challenge will be? I think it will be trying to please the collation he put together. When you look at the people who supported him the largest swing group was those making over $250,000 a year. What will happen when their taxes go up? What about the Union Organizers when they want to eliminate the secret ballot for union elections? What is going to happen when he finds out he can not get out of Iraq as easy as he thought? What is going to happen when the Judges he appoints allow Abortion on demand and at any stage? What about Gay Marriage? What will happen when he pushes for renewable energy and your electric bill doubles or triples? He is going to find out that he can not do what he wants to do, how are his supporters going to react?

Many people think Obama's supporters will react by making Obama the most unpopular president in the history of the USA. Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter will no longer be competing for the title of 'worst president ever'. It will be Obama's alone.

Red, the only people I know that think that Bill Clinton was the worst president ever are the far right wing Kool-Aide drinking ultra conservative republicans who feel that Ronald Reagan was the second coming. You are far to intelligent to be one of those Red.

I don't think too many people will argue that the one holding the title "Worst President Ever" is still residing in the White House. Annie

Annie maybe you have forgotten the Carter administration and the wondering if you would be able to get gas for the car. Or going to the store and finding that prices had gone up again this week. I can remember keeping the house at 65 degrees and watching TV with a wool jacket and a blanket keeping me warm as I watched Ted Kopel tell us that nothing changed in day 220 of the Iran Embassy Hostage Crisis. When he tried a rescue mission he could only find 6 Sea King helicopters, the minimum needed, in all the military because of his budget cuts for such wild spending as maintenance. President Bush has a long way to go to beat that.

I don't usually like to give short, one line answers but here goes - his biggest challenge will be cleaning up the mess Bush left for him. Although that is more than one challenge I guess - and, OOPS, it's more than one line! Annie

Do you mean the high gas prices and housing meltdown that all started after the Democrats took control of Congress in 06?

Bobmnu, Did you see the news that the Iraq war for practical purposes is over? 0bama will be able to start bringing home troops almost immediately. Resistance by the enemy has declined to almost zero in most places. Want to bet on whether or not 0bama takes credit?

I guess you mean like Bush was stuck with cleaning up the mess that Clinton left... hmmm? In case you haven't heard... it was Clinton's policies thhat ultimately created the mess we are now in, and Bush and McCain both tried to fix it and were blocked by the democrats at every turn. So forget that line that it is Bush's mess, because not only do we know the truth... so does the rest of the country including the liberal press. Blaming Bush just don't work any more.

I think his biggest problem is going to be trying to keep the unrealistic campaign promises that he made. There is no possible way to fix the economy and create the massive redistribution of wealth that he has promised. Already he is trying to bring down the high expectations that his supporters have of him so that they are not overcome by despair when he fails to fulfill those expectations, although it is his lofty promises that created those expectations in the first place. His challenge is living up to the promises that he can't keep.

If he names Hillary to be Sect of State he may have a full time job keeping her and Bill following his policies.
