I feel Obama is a large leader to out entire country. He is a great public speaker, he thinks of others before himself, and he trys his best make others happy. Obama has showed his great public speaking during his election and also recently at the State Of The Union Address. Obama also had mentioned during his election that he wanted to give health insurance to everyone in America, which shows he thinks of others before himself. Obama has worked very hard for 2 years to try and help our country stay civilized. I think all of these “characteristics” portray how Barack Obama is a great leader.
