Dr Michael Fullilove, the Lowy Institute’s Program Director Global Issues, has been observing President Barack Obama for a long time. He was in Boston for the 2004 Democratic National Convention at which Obama emerged as a national figure, and he spent the 2008 election year in the United States as a Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution.
