From our partner, TheGrio:
President Obama turns 50 years old today. More than half-way through his first term, is the Obama presidency going through a mid-life crisis? A mid-life crisis comes for many adults at a turning point in life (or an administration) where an individual takes stock of where they are and makes adjustments based upon where they believe they need to be.
Most people who go through this process will balance their successes in life such as career, family, and health, against challenges such as debt (personal or national) and loss (familial or legislative).
