Collaborative Communication in the Oval Office

January 13, 2009 | NeW Staff

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.
