Hour 2 -  The Legacy of Barack Obama  

Fareed Zakaria Explores the 44th President's Tenure Zakaria asserts that President Barack Obama brought dramatic policy changes to the American landscape, and he argues that the ambitious Obama Presidency may be among the most consequential in history. In 'The Legacy of Barack Obama,'Zakaria tells the stories of some of the Presidents biggest policy bets both the brilliant successes and the heartbreaking failures. Through extraordinarily candid interviews with President Obama, as well as many of the key players who served his administration, 'The Legacy of Barack Obama' examines the historic election of Americas first African-American President, the impact of the gridlock that haunted his tenure, what he achieved in the face of unprecedented opposition, and the vexing problems he was unable to solve. Zakaria illustrates the behind-the-scenes concerns and strategy that yielded President Obamas comprehensive healthcare legislation a feat that had eluded seven previous presidents, his personal struggle with the racial strife that rocked his years in office, the rescue of the global economy, the historic deal with Iran to halt that nations march towards a nuclear weapon, the global climate change agreements, the appointment of two women to the U.S. Supreme Court, and Obamas moves on social issues such as marriage equality for gay Americans, equal pay legislation, criminal justice reform, and more. Now, President-elect Donald Trump, who campaigned to dismantle most of Obamas achievements, has declared that almost every major Obama initiative is under threat. And, among the crises that appear will remain unsolved as President Obama prepares to leave office are: the irony of the fact that polls show race relations are at their lowest point in a generation, common sense gun regulations, an unabated and brutal civil war in Syria, and the resulting massive migration that has helped usher in a wave of nativist populism across Europe and America.
