Obama In Springfield

Others may know better, but the only thing I can think to add to today's New York Times profile of Obama's time in Springfield is that, while he was there, he apparently helped rebuff the Daley-Vallas effort to give the Board the power to override LSC hiring decisions, and helped put in the "arbitrary and capricious" language that protects LSCs from having their decisions over-ruled -- so far.  But maybe that's just another example of people ascribing more of an influence to Obama than is warranted -- sort of like the EdWeek story from earlier this year that made Obama out to be the mastermind behind the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.
