CAF writer Bill Scher outlines some rules that the president could follow to make his second term historic.
"How can Obama beat the second-term curse, launch a new liberal era and ensure a place in history as one of the greats? First, he must understand that second-term pitfalls generally fall into two groups: scandal and hubris... It’s hubris that should worry Obama. A President can only be great by aiming high. But aiming too high has big risks."
