Collaborative Communication in the Oval Office

by NeW Staff on January 13, 2009 · 0 comments

In a recent article in The New York Times, author Sheryl Stolberg discussed what the role of living past US Presidents has been in history and what it should be today. Recently, President-elect Barack Obama, President Bill Clinton, President George H.W. Bush, President Jimmy Carter, and President George W. Bush all met in the Oval Office. In the past, living US Presidents have not had much communication or interaction; however, it appears as though Obama desires to gain insight and perspective from these past leaders. What will be the result of such meetings and interactions? Will there be more of a bipartisan effort coming from the White House? Will Obama continue to seek the counsel of one or more of these men throughout his Presidential term? With the inauguration approaching quickly on January 20, we will wait and see what kind of leadership decisions Obama will make and the benefits of such collaborative efforts for his Presidency.
