Once upon a time the pair were both contenders for the top job (President of the USA, obviously), so the relationship between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton couldn’t always have been described as cordial. As the competition grew more and more stiff it seemed there was no limit to the lengths each would go to undermine the other. But the animosity appears to be a thing of the past now that the two are back batting for the same team.
Barack Obama is the first African American to become the president of the United States of America. He came to office amidst great hopes for change in US foreign policy (and a possible pull out from war zones Iraq and Afghanistan), but two years on his administration has done little to fulfill his presidential promise of “Change you can believe in.”
