“Inside Obama’s Presidency”: His Second-Term Agenda

January 16, 2013

On Inauguration Day next week, Barack Obama will officially begin the final chapter of his presidency. Ahead of all the pomp and circumstance, FRONTLINE is looking back on the president’s first four years in office with Inside Obama’s Presidency

Yesterday, we kicked off a two-day conversation around the film with six of the country’s leading journalists covering the administration, asking them whether Obama achieved his goal of becoming a transformational president.

Today, we look ahead to the second-term agenda: What will it be? What is achievable? How will the lessons of the past four years inform the president’s approach to the next four years?

The conversation will begin at approximately 11:30 a.m. and continue throughout the afternoon.
