Jodi Kantor is going to pop in and kick this off. Why? Well, in part because the paperback of her book, "The Obamas," comes out today. But also in part because she's curious! I'll let her ask you herself....
Do you like Obama better or less than you did four years ago?
I've been writing about the president for five years for the NY Times, and more than any other question, the one I get is: do you like Obama? That's hard for me to answer, because thinking in journalistic terms can be a bit clinical, and because I've seen or heard about him in so many moments, some of when he's hugely likeable, some when he's a lot less so. (Many of those moments are in my book, about the Obamas in the White House.)
But I'm curious to hear from others, not least because Obama's likeability is expected to play an important role in the election. Do you like him more or less than you did in '08? When have liked him best and worst?
