Can Obama survive another term?

Obama has encountered a great number of challenges since he took office in January 2009, after having achieved the one of the best election results for a Democratic candidate in the last century. His biggest task has been the overhaul of the US health care system, which has been a longstanding issue in the country, dividing social conservatives and liberals. Former attempts by the former US President Bill Clinton to introduce a universal health care bill were defeated by intense campaigns by the Republican right, who viewed the concept of a nationalised system as a stepping stone to socialised medicine and the rationing of health care services. Obama’s new health care bill, Obamacare, doesn’t even come into fruition for a few more years, by which time any prospective Republican president would indefinitely repeal. The new bill will leave many millions of people in America without access to health care and has been regarded by many on the left as a mere ‘compromise'or a ‘sell-out'to the incredibly powerful insurance companies.

Meanwhile, the recent news regarding the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden, the most wanted enemy of the Western world, has been a source of relief for the Obama administration, having already suffered in some of the more recent polls (the capture of Bin Laden was also facilitated by the work of British Special Forces with raf insurance as well). Meanwhile, the economy is the next major milestone for his presidency, as is the issue of America’s high unemployment rate. The president made it quite clear during his inauguration speech that the country would be in for very tough times and this has evidently been the case.
