Reading through yesterday’s interviews with President Obama, it’s hard to avoid the conclusion that he’s still not quite engaging the eternal American debate about government, and could be making a stronger, more affirmative case that government has often been a force for good in people’s lives. Obama is one of the most gifted public communicators of the last generation, so one imagines he’s thought this stuff through pretty carefully. But it still seems like he could be hitting these themes a bit harder.
