Is the love affair over? Top American and European media experts, political consultants, and scholars gathered at Villa Sassetti to reflect on the first year of the Obama administration and to analyze where the Obama administration stands in relation to the very high expectations that greeted his election on both sides of the Atlantic. The verdict was decidedly mixed, but all panelists agreed that the initial euphoria felt by many Americans and Europeans has waned and the picture of a more complicated Obama and less decisive changes in American foreign and domestic policy has come into focus.
