Philip Klinkner, the James S. Sherman Professor of Government, spoke with Wall Street Journal reporter Naftali Bendavid for an article on how President-elect Barack Obama's first term may or may not mirror that of Franklin D. Roosevelt. In "FDR's Popularity Helped Power New Deal," which appeared in the paper's Jan. 6 issue, Klinkner commented that Roosevelt established a connection with the electorate unlike that of any previous president.
