Justin Frank, clinical professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at George Washington University, presents a psychoanalytic study of President Obama. Dr. Frank, from examining the president’s upbringing, personal background, and public conduct, contends that the president has a strong need to create consensus, which according to the author, aided President Obama during his presidential campaign but has hurt his presidency. Dr. Frank talked about his book at Politics and Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., and responded to questions from members of the audience. close
