Last month, Newsweek predicted that Obama's second term may secure his status in American history. The national magazine said:
"He will emerge as an iconic figure who struggled through a recession and a terrorized world, reshaping the economy within it, passing universal health care, strafing the ranks of al-Qaida, presiding over a civil-rights revolution, and then enjoying the fruits of the recovery."
