His eulogy in Charleston allowed us a glimpse of the very private Obama we rarely see.
President Obama spoke with brutal clarity Friday, but what might have been had he done so earlier in his presidency?
In a eulogy for one of the Charleston shooting victims, the president spoke in unapologetically progressive tones on race, racism, gun violence, and inequality.
"I couldn't be prouder of you and your husband," the president told the plaintiff in Friday's historic gay-marriage ruling.
Before addressing the nation, the president called the case's lead plaintiff to congratulate him on his Court victory.
Obama is believed to have attended more memorial services than any president in modern history.
"This is as good as it gets for the president of the United States."
