WASHINGTON (4/30/09)--Credit Union National Association (CUNA) President/CEO Dan Mica was among three Washington notables in the Atlantic Monthly on President Barack Obama’s first 100 days in office. Mica was contacted by Atlantic along with former Sens. John C. Danforth (R-Mo.) and Bob Kerrey (D-Neb.) to provide perspective on the new administration. The Atlantic Monthly asked each to comment on Obama’s biggest strengths and weaknesses. The three noted some of their thoughts on Obama’s leadership abilities, demeanor and communication skills. The nation’s economic problems, national security and international concerns were also mentioned. Among the strengths Mica noted: Obama’s reach to the rest of the world, his calm approach to the nation, and his explanation of problems. One weakness could be his handling of declassified information. The nation traditionally pauses at each new administration’s 100th day in office to note how the president and administration are doing. Obama reached his 100th day in office Wednesday.
