    We all should probably be treating H1N1 as if it's a 6 already, as this thing looks like it'll be there shortly anyway. TX school district is being proactive in doing so. Why wait until it's mandatory or too late to have any effect? Until we know the full magnitude of the effects of this bug, and a reliable means to combat it, let's not have to once again talk about how hindsight is 20/20...

    I am very impressed with Pres. Obama's intelligence, demeanor, calm & agenda. I initially was concerned as to whether he was "ready" for such a huge responsibility (i supported Clinton, but voted for Obama).

    I think he has shown himself to the a man of the times we are in and remain very hopeful that he will suceed in the coming years & problems.

    Obama an F. Spending money an A+, all other results nonexistent. Apology tour, a national embarrasment.

    @ Laura – Va "I cringe to think of what the first 100 days would have looked like with a McCain/Palin administration."

    Same here. I think it would have been a nightmare from which there is now awakening from.

    Great coverage. CNN Political Team. Great to see you all there at the same time. Sort of like a who's who of CNN all in one room! Have a good evening!

    How did I know that there would be a similar event at 200 days?

    I am still very happy that I voted for Obama. I cringe to think of what the first 100 days would have looked like with a McCain/Palin administration.

    oh my goodness, that could be a scary movie

    How about giving Obama an A (close to an A+) with the POTUS's relations with other countries and their leaders? 🙂

    I'm with Jeff and David on this one. I give the President an A-. He shows a lot of promise but I'm still waiting for the results.

    I felt the reporter asked a very interesting question when he asked President Obama what troubled him most in his first onehundred days in office. When I was watching the telecast of the news conference I felt President Obama did look a little sad or troubled and his answer was that he has a lot of important issues to deal with the swine flu epidemic, a recession that is the closest America has had to a real depression,(which included the mortgage crisis, the motor company bailout), ways to make a better fuel efficient vehicle that if the Japanese can make a hybrid car, so can we, his concerns with pollution, a war in the Middle East,and he will always have respect for our servicemen and women in the Armed Forces, the health care in America. He stated he wished his portfolio was thin, that he did not have to have so many investments to make and so many cabinet members needed to fill positions that make these issues become positive issues for Americans. He said his job as president is an important one, but, there are so many other people who are also working in positions that are important to get these issues tackled. That we will overcome these obstacles eventually, but he is also troubled at how long it takes to get these issues resolved. I feel President Obama's first 100 days might have been his most trying and most importantly to learn what had been set before him as important issues during his term in office as President. I feel he looked a little tired, but none the less, for what he has accomplished in the first 100 days in office, he is doing the best job as president as one could expect of him to do.

    @Lori, I agree. Spector switched parties because he was worried about his reelection. There's no other reason for the change.

    Miss J I am with you on Nancy Pelosi. The male
    commentators spend way too much time bashing
    Speaker Pelosi.

    President Obama has done a lot more in his first 100 days than Bush had done in 8 years... well Bush did do a lot but it wasn't good as all the world now knows.

    I am confused does this just mean Ft. Worth and
    not Dallas ?
