Robin's Dangerous Question
By Bryan Caplan
Robin celebrates Inauguration Day with an idealistic yet cynical challenge:
[W]hat does Obama have to do for you to consider him a “good” president,
or even better than Bush? It is enough for you that he is (part) black
and a Democrat? Or does he actually have to do something?
He then sketches his expectations for “most any president today,” and asks readers if they think Obama will do better or worse. Whatever you think, today’s the day to go on the record!
As for me, my current probability that Obama will be the next FDR has fallen to 6%.
