      He's done a lot of small to medium-sized good things, which are not trivial let alone nothing. But he's failed to even try to take on the really big, systemic problems that, left unsolved, will likely undermine and negate if not reverse these smaller accomplishments. E.g. systemic financial risk, a health care system based on a for-profit model, a growing MIC, etc. Any of these are capable of destroying us someday and making these smaller gains moot.
