Author James Mann on President Obama, his inner circle, and their lasting legacies on foreign policy

James Mann discusses his new book "The Obamians: The Struggle Inside the White House to Redefine American Power". In his book Mann compares the foreign policies of the last three presidents, particularly focusing on the Obama administration.

The author in residence at Johns Hopkins University describes “the Obamians” as people with a different view on the world “who had worked with Obama starting in the campaign but really hadn’t served in the Clinton administration because they were too young.”

Mann adds, "the Obamians" tend to be "democarats age 50.. or younger and ... hold a common different view of the world."
