Both really praising the vision and administration of Obama. While the WSJ writers point out how Obama is no LBJ, they perhaps forget that the Congress of the 21st century is not the Congress of the sixties.

The entrenched interess, the viciousness of the partisan attacks, the billions of dollars at stake in Congressional legislation, human greed that is not constant like the height of the mighty Everest keeps rising with every generation ...

Lincoln and LBJ and Jefferson and Washington would have operated differently today than they did in their milieu. If going back to the farm after retirement is a virtue, then George W. Bush has it, does he not? Well, perhaps he did not exactly retire to his ranch.
