How does the inauguration of incoming President Barack Obama compare with those of other chief executives in recent history? Will the American public give Obama a much longer “honeymoon” of support than the ones granted to George W. Bush and Bill Clinton? And will history be kind to the GW presidency? Returning as my guest is Loyola University political science professor Alan Gitelson, who has provided political analysis for NPR, WGN, and countless other media outlets. [Originally broadcast on WLUW’s Under Surveillance in January 2009.]
