Interesting article on how Barack Obama used to be when he was a law professor at U. Chicago. I think we can probably learn a lot about him from this article. Also check out the exam questions he put out. They give interesting insights into his professional life and thinking. But I guess the real sense you get from the article is what happens at the end:
Obama is becoming less and less complicated in his rhetoric, and I don't like that one bit.But as a professor, students say, Mr. Obama was in the business of complication, showing that even the best-reasoned rules have unintended consequences, that competing legal interests cannot always be resolved, that a rule that promotes justice in one case can be unfair in the next.
So even some former students who are thrilled at Mr. Obama’s success wince when they hear him speaking like the politician he has so fully become.
“When you hear him talking about issues, it’s at a level so much simpler than the one he’s capable of,” Mr. Rodriguez said. “He was a lot more fun to listen to back then.”
