10 Goals for President Obama & The White House

President Obama: 10 Goals for a Civil Liberties President
The First 100 Days

While different from a new presidency, the achievements of the first 100 days of the second term of an administration offer a unique opportunity to put a stamp on the coming years of policy making. In addition to our Day One recommendations, we urge the Obama Administration to wipe away the polarization and recriminations of its first four years and brand itself by standing up for the Constitution and the ever present challenges to its guiding wisdom. With diligence and determination, the administration can achieve the following ten things in the first 100 days of the new term and earn the label of the ‘civil liberties presidency’.
