Mostly B’s: Political Powerhouse, You Are President Barack Obama
Talk about a game-changer. President Barack Obama took his grassroots efforts as a civil rights attorney in Chicago straight to a successful run for president, etching in stone his place in history. Under this Nobel Peace Prize laureate’s leadership, the U.S. saw many advancements including the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009; the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 (in response to the late 2000s recession); the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act of 2010; and the Budget Control Act of 2011. He made more history in May 2012, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to openly support legalizing same-sex marriage. And in another landmark accomplishment, his presidency facilitated an end to the Iraqi War and the death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
A political powerhouse like Obama can take pressure with authoritative calm. They don’t mind taking on immense responsibility and feel a strong obligation to help improve the lives of people in their communities. They are charismatic, know a thing or two about law and are family-oriented. They know the important of a team and protect their reputations and brands fiercely. They hold an active seat at the political table, whether it’s campaigning for local, government or federal positions. They can motivate teams and initiate positive change.
