As President Obama hits his 100th day in office, the marker is defined
by accomplishments–pledging to close Guantánamo, repealing
the Global Gag Rule and working toward nuclear nonproliferation–and
blemishes, particularly the flawed bank bailout and questionable plans
for military escalation in Afghanistan. In this video, Nation Editor and Publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel discusses Obama’s actions from the first 100 hours in office. She also answers questions raised at The Nation‘s recent “Obama @ 100” forum in Washington, which featured a panel of Nation writers and Congresswoman Donna Edwards (D-MD).
