Matthew Walther, national correspondent at The Week, writes,

Trump resembles most his immediate successor, whose actual accomplishments in office will always matter less than what his election itself represented.

Obama’s actual achievements in office—the auto bailout, “Cash for Clunkers,” the passage of the Affordable Care Act, DACA, the Iranian nuclear deal, winning a Nobel Peace Prize—seem mostly insignificant. They certainly do not live up to the scope of his ambitions as a newly inaugurated president who spoke incessantly about “the fierce urgency of now.”
