Barack Obama Gives Himself "B-Plus" on Oprah

by at . Comments

On Oprah Winfrey's "White House Christmas Special," President Barack Obama gave himself a "good, solid B-plus" in his first year in the Oval Office.

The Nobel Prize winner credited his administration with getting the economy on track, winding down the Iraq war and making the decision in Afghanistan.

He also said America has "reset" its prestige in the world and made progress toward halting development of nuclear weapons in Iran and North Korea.

Health care reform would boost his grade to an A-minus, he said, but until that and more people finding work "I can't give myself the grade I'd like."

Oprah also interviewed Michelle Obama, who discussed less pressing topics, such as the White House's gingerbread house and First Dog Bo giving high-fives.

While the interview was primarily Oprah lobbing softballs at the First Couple, it was interesting to hear the President's assessment of his own performance.

What do you think? How would you grade Obama's first year?
