“Barack Obama. He was unparalleled in his ability to inspire the best in this county, and make people feel optimistic. We haven’t seen that since.”


Larry G

Los Angeles

“It’s a toss up between Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. They both did a pretty good job and tried to make things better.”



John Garcia

Los Angeles

“I don’t know about before, but in my time, it’s Barack Obama.”


Natalie Neith

Los Angeles

“Obama because he was just so positive and everything he did was good. Joe Biden is also doing a good job, but unfortunately, nobody seems to be getting that message.”
