Annual Review of the Presidency 2013, Sponsored by the Matsui Center at IGS

A panel of experts analyzes President Obama's re-election victory, and the prospects for his second term in the White House. The President won a clear but narrow victory, carrying fewer states and receiving a lower share of the popular vote than he did in 2008. At the same time voters stuck with the status quo in Congress -- a Republican House and a Democratic Senate. So was the election a mandate for the President or merely a rejection of Republican nominee Mitt Romney? In either case, what should we expect from the second Obama Administration? Will it be more of the same, or a changed style of leadership? How much of the President's agenda is tied to the economy? What about foreign policy events over which the President has no control? Join us for a discussion that will look back at the election of 2012 and ahead to the next four years.
