A newly elected president is often judged by his first 100 days in office. "It's interesting, when JFK was given a speech to read that said, 'I don't want to be judged by the first hundred days,' he slashed it out and said, 'a thousand days.'" Doris says. "But I think what Obama has going for him, in a time of crisis, more things are possible. ... And I think what he's got is the capacity to tell people, 'Listen [and have] patience.'"
