    44 years after conviction, Freedom Rider Sala Udin is pardoned by Obama

    President Obama’s decision this week to issue 78 Christmas season pardons — the most of his presidency — should have special meaning for veterans of the civil rights movement.

    Among the recipients was former Pittsburgh City Council member Sala Udin, a onetime Freedom Rider who was beaten up registering voters in 1960s Mississippi. But Udin had been haunted for decades by a criminal charge that grew out of his youthful activism: Driving fellow protesters home from the South, he was stopped for speeding in Kentucky and arrested after police found an unloaded shotgun and a jug of moonshine in the car ...

    Obama: 'I'm confident' I would've won if I ran for president in 2016

    President Barack Obama believes he would have won the 2016 presidential election had he been able to run, insisting the message of "hope and change" he campaigned on in 2008 still holds true.

    "I am confident in this vision because I'm confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could've mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it," Obama told David Axelrod, his former senior adviser and current CNN Senior Political Commentator, on CNN's "The Axe Files" podcast aired on Monday ...

    WHERE OBAMA RANKS AMONG ALL PRESIDENTS

    ... Members of the advisory team for the survey had varied reactions to Obama’s placement. “That Obama came in at number 12 his first time out is quite impressive,” Douglas Brinkley, a professor of history at Rice University, said in a statement. Edna Greene Medford, a history professor at Howard University, had a different take: “Although 12th is a respectable overall ranking, one would have thought that former President Obama’s favorable rating when he left office would have translated into a higher ranking in this presidential survey” ...
