Obama’s calm leadership style, his deliberative methods and his tight teamwork has winsome most of the commentators upon his 100 days of successful US presidency. Unlike others, Mr. Fareed Zakaria of Newsweek has pointed some specialties on Obama who has read the country and the political moment correctly. He understands that America in 2009 is in a very different place now. Newsweek magazine has reported that today, America is more liberal than it was two decades ago. In a detailed study for the liberal think tank the Center for American Progress, Ruy Teixeira, and John Halpin point out that 67 percent of Americans now think favorably of the term "progressive," a 25 point increase in five years, which suggested that Barrack Obama's success derives from his understanding of this shift—and his readiness to act on it.
In fact, shortly after his inauguration on Jan 20, Obama was choosing an Arab station, Al Arabiyya, to give his first formal TV interview, widely interpreted as a signal that he wanted to improve relations with the Arab and Muslim world. He also called for peace and dialogue with Islam in a speech to Turkey's parliament on his first presidential visit to the Muslim world in April. Furthermore, his desire to cease a deplorable policy disagreement between Iran, Syria as well as Cuba has shown a positive sign that a striking move of closing the gap between the west and the rest (especially Islam) is under the progress, perhaps. Even in this coming June, Obama is expected to deliver a much anticipated speech to the Muslim world in Egypt, seeking to repair ties that were severely damaged under his predecessor George W. Bush.
