How Do Historians Rate Obama?

The History News Network is a nonpartisan website that gives historians a platform to comment on current events. We feature articles from scholars of all political persuasions and we're critically acclaimed within the historical community.

It’s too soon to tell how Obama will rank amongst U.S. presidents, but that hasn’t stopped historians weighing in on what he’s doing right (and wrong).

As of 2011, he's got more historians as critics than supporters (though Allan Lichtman, professor of history at American University, still predicts he'll be re-elected in 2012).
