Watch part two

After arriving in Washington in 2005, Barack Obama was little known outside of Illinois.

However in three years he has generated more excitement than any presidential candidate in decades.  

Hundreds of thousands of people have flocked to listen to his speeches, chanted his slogans and bought his t-shirts.

The media coverage, whether positive or negative, has been equally excitable.

Every aspect of Obama’s character and life story has received endless scrutiny, while telling us remarkably little about what he actually stands for.

Inside USA puts Obama's policies under the microscope and looks at wehere his vision would affect the US economy and the country's place in the world. 

This episode of Inside USA aired from Friday September 12.
