And still a feeling that some of the great things that were done might fall apart. And don't get it twisted, this is not here to applaud everything President Obama did. (Un)fortunately it also does not shine too much light on what went wrong during his last couple of months. Then again, can you blame him for the failures of the DNC? This is not what the movie is about. It is there to observe and get a bit of the daily work that was done.

But also the humans behind it all. Just like everyone else they have their character traits, which can be seen as good or bad. It also might be seen as a warning shot of what is to come. All the deals and everything that has been done. Not being involved in scandals, not ridiculing others or having petty "wars" with the press. There was dignity ... and it got lost. This may not be great, but while watching it and seeing the struggles the current administration goes through ... well maybe it's better not to watch, as in too soon ... still too soon
