In an interview during the 2008 campaign, Barack Obama explained that Ronald Reagan had changed the trajectory of America in a way that Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton did not. Clearly, Obama aspired to be a transformational president like Reagan. first line in Obama's biography will have to do with who he is, the first African-American president.Just one example: Over Obama's term as president, solar costs have plummeted by 70 percent and solar generation is up 3,000 percent.Just as Reagan solidified the ideological position of the Republican Party – around free markets, free trade, an expansive foreign policy and an optimistic outlook – Obama has helped push the Democratic Party to be more willing to use government to achieve public purposes.In that 2008 campaign interview, Obama pointed out that Reagan didn't change the country single-handedly; he took advantage of a shift in the national mood. Years of stagnant wages, rising inequality and the financial crisis have all created a new political atmosphere, one that Obama has helped shape.The biggest impact of his presidency, however, can be seen in his opposition, the Republican Party, which is in the midst of an ideological breakdown.
