On the one hand, he’s had such a hard life commuting between exotic locales such as Indonesia and Hawaii, being married to a snappy dresser with a six-figure income, and winning his Senate seat in a virtually uncontested race. Despite these hardships, “he’s not a person who is easily rattled,” says a former law partner.

On the other hand, Obama is “young” and a “newcomer,” and there is nothing that Americans hate more than youth.
