Since FDR started the concept, a President's first 100 days have been an important early measure of success. History will be kind to Obama's first 100 days -- not since FDR has so much 100-days progress been made.
In recent history, Democrats often have done things that obviously should have been done already -- like when congressional Dems finally raised the minimum wage in early 2007. President Obama has his fair share of why-haven't-we-done-this-yets: the equal pay act, closing gitmo, and easing travel restrictions to Cuba come to mind.
