“Obama Saw Successes, Then Harder Times”

I’ve read (or skimmed) Barack Obama’s two autobiographical books, and followed his political rise, so the above headline in today’s Wall Street Journal caught my eye: was there some, heretofore hidden chapter in his life?


The “successes” referred to Obama’s first three months in office; the “harder times” the second three months.

Glad the journalist has a sense of perspective . . .

P.S.: Once upon a time, a “half-decade” referred to 5 years.
