Eight years of Obama; a call for compromise
President Barack Obama earned a second term Tuesday. Many thorny problems await his attention. We call on Democrats, Republicans and the president to learn from the mistakes of the past 4 years, do a better job the next 4 years, and work together to restore America.
In 8 years, quite a bit can happen.
Eight years ago, then-state Sen. Barack Obama, fresh off a smashing keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in Boston, scheduled a stop in Dixon during a 3-day campaign swing through downstate Illinois.
There he was, on Aug. 2, 2004, soon to turn 43 years old, a Chicago Democrat on the brink of a U.S. Senate victory, and 4 years before he would complete his meteoric rise to become the first African-American president.
