Remember, Obama hasn't taken office as president, only glimpsed the Oval Office as a visitor and won't take over until January 20.
But already, he's being compared to the most remarkable leaders the United States has ever had.
The article goes on to discuss which of those "most remarkable leaders" Obama is being compared to, including JFK, Lincoln, FDR, and...Bill Clinton. Really? I mean, I'm the kind of guy who believes in the idea of letting the judgment of history define the impact of a presidency, but lumping Clinton in with those guys just seems, well, wrong.
Oh, and you've got to love the way the article ends:
The Americans who are comparing him to those remarkable predecessors are putting a lot of faith in a man they barely know.
Yeah, thanks for all your help there, CNN.
