Obama Eyes a Legacy
What Obama wants written in the first paragraph of history is that he helped deliver a better life for the people struggling in the richest nation on earth. His second-term agenda amounts to a wish list in support of this core idea. Obama wants an immigration law that would deal firmly but compassionately with millions of illegal residents. He wants an economic model that demands more money from the rich to shrink the debt. A tax system that is fairer and simpler for families is on his list of to-dos. A bigger emphasis on education and made-in-America energy are also important to Obama.
