Best and Worst of Obama's First 100 Days


The Nation editors and writers discuss the encouraging decisions of the administration as well as some moves that deserve criticism from the left at the "Obama@100: A Progress Report from The Nation" panel, April 22 in Washington, DC. While panelists gave Obama praise for signing the stimulus bill and repealing the global gag rule, the administration's reluctance to prosecute Bush-era officials for torture has disappointed progressives. Panelists in the discussion included The Nation's Editor and Publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel, Washington, DC Editor Chris Hayes, Net Movement Correspondent Ari Melber, National Affairs Correspondent William Greider, the Executive Director of the Center for Community Change Deepak Bhargava, Congresswoman Donna Edwards (D-MD) and Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN).
