    Obama will get no rest before second-term challenges arise
    So, Barack Obama, you've been granted a second term. What do you do for an encore? It has become commonplace to observe that presidential second terms are fraught with disappointment. George W. Bush's was marred by a bogged-down war in Iraq and the...
