At a the forum “Obama at 100: A Progress Report from The Nation” held on
April 21, 2009 Deepak Bhargava, executive director of the
Center for Community Change, lauded the early progress the Obama
administration has made in reversing forty years of neglect for the poor.
While Bhargava, an editorial board member at The
, made clear that the devastating scope of the recession has
mitigated the impact of the reforms, he concluded that, “Boy, it is a
new day in Washington.”
